The actor told Pinkvilla, "So, it wasn't like I was looking to doing this genre, script-wise. When I read it, what jumped for me was the camaraderie between the brothers, the banter and the friction. The fact that they both really don't get along - it was really nice and interesting. You generally have two conmen who think alike and get along. Here there is a reluctant conman, who wants to be straight, and you have a conman who believes life is exactly about this - you got to play on people's fears and use it to your advantage. I quite liked the love-hate relation and the tone of adventure."
