When N Chandra approached Anupam for the role, Anupam told him at the first place to narrate the film in five minutes and only then he would decide to go for the whole 50 minutes of narration. In five minute of narration N. Chandra convinced him to do the film.
Apparently Anupam was so sure of the film that he did not feel the necessity to go for the rest 50 minutes of narration. “I agreed to do the film instantly because it dealt with humanity and I also believed in N Chandra that he will craft it beautifully," he reasons.
Apart from Anupam Kher, it also stars Perizaad Zorabian, Purab Kohli, Rajpal Yadav, Smiley Suri, Rajit Kapoor, Atul Kulkarni, Seema Biswas, Milind Gunaji, and Sarika who are equally delighted to be part of Y.M.I.
