He met his casting director Honey Trehan (Talvar, Udta Punjab), who confirmed that "at least eight-10" of the principal characters would be played by Indian actors, as the film would be shot on location in Mumbai, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Kashmir. "It will take off towards the year-end or early 2017 and is a signature Majidi film in its take on relationships and emotional quotient," he told MM.
