Over the next five years, the movie battled more than its fair share of roadblocks, including a casting change. While the project was announced with Shraddha Kapoor earlier, it now stars Parineeti Chopra in the titular role. “[Making] this film felt like jumping off a plane, with the parachute refusing to open. Saina left the casting to me; she loved both Parineeti and Shraddha. I don’t audition a lot, believing that everyone is capable of being a good actor, with a little help. Parineeti has hit the nail on the head. Saina has been playing since she was eight. Parineeti can’t replicate [her mastery], but had the wisdom to replicate the efficiency.”
