The Director of movie, Omung Kumar says,

“I wanted Randeep Hooda as sarbjit because he fits the role completely, he is a very good actor and takes all his roles seriously, so when we approached him he came to the meeting completely prepared for the role. We compared sarbjits and randeeps photographs and He actually looks like young sarbjit, he is from Haryana so the accent will work very well with him.And whatever Randeep has done before he has put in more than 200% in the role. When I was narrating him the script he went into small small details that he could do for the character, and was taking in all the scenes and living it rite in front of me and after the meeting immediately he said yes. That’s how we got our sarbjit “
