The actors, namely, Sanya Malhotra, Radhika Madan, and Sunil Grover have also been praised for their performance in the movie. In an interview to IANS, Sunil said, “Vishal sir’s writing is like poetry. So, as a performer, one cannot change words because that tampers the thought. He has written the script very carefully. His use of every single word has some reason. So for me, it was a challenge to match up that level of accuracy.”
