During the press conference of the trailer launch, the entire cast addressed the question of the media. Talking about how challenging was the training period, Farhan said, “As you start training for the sport you realize how much you think you are fit. You are not prepared to take on the sport of boxing with that attitude in mind that it will happen. It is an extremely demanding sport. It is physical, mental as well and emotional for the player, it’s like playing chess with your opponent but you are using your body.”
Mrunal revealed that her role is an amalgamation of the people that inspired her in the journey. Her mother, who motivated her too do the best in her part of the film. Paresh Rawal on the other hand talked about fitness and how this film has changed his perspective towards being into sports.
