He shared,” When Sattwik came to me with the script I said I like it but who is the producer. He said that I don’t have any producer.I told him whenever you have a producer come back. After 2 months I called him he said he hadn’t found a producer till then but said he was still trying. That’s when I decided to get on board.”
Himansh Kohli, who rose to fame with his debut movie Yaariyan is playing a desi and raw character in the movie and he shared how he prepared for this role.
