When asked about casting Prithviraj Sukumaran for the Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff starrer, director Ali Abbas Zafar explained, ”The idea was to cast a superstar as the villain, someone who has a tremendous hold on their craft. It was decided that the character needed to be played by a superstar from another industry, breaking the clutter and appealing to audiences across all languages. I am a big fan of Prithvi’s work, and I was fortunate enough that he loved the role. The character has many layers and nuances.” Also Read – Bade Miyan Chote Miyan: Did you know Akshay Kumar continued shooting despite massive injury, superstar’s dedication is admirable

Upon hearing this, Prithvi expressed that it seemed I really wanted him to do the role, and I confirmed that I did. Fortunately, everything worked out well.”
