      In an interview with Free Press Journal, the director opened up about the casting and how Ranveer worked on his portrayal of Kapil Dev. He said, "It's a very difficult task, because what happens is, especially when its peculiar accent, the danger with something like that is that you can easily make it caricaturish, and that was big trap for us - do we fall in that trap and end up caricaturing Kapil Dev?"

      "I told Ranveer that it's not a look-alike contest, and it's not about how you look like Kapil Dev. It's about you taking on the persona... something that Ranveer has succeeded in doing. As a director, I could only observe and comment if it was right or wrong. But, the process of getting in the character was totally Ranveer," Kabir Khan added,
