We wished to explore the theme of urban alienation, that not all individual stories in big cities end in success; quite a few must deal with the dark underbelly.”
Talking about his character, Adesh Sidhu mentioned, “Amanpreet is just another village boy who is satisfied with his life in the village, but then as compelled by circumstances, he unwillingly migrates to Delhi for livelihood.

I fell in love with the script and immediately decided to make somehow this project happen with Sunit Sir.”
