In an exclusive interaction with Etimes, Varun opened up about the film. The actor said, ”I fell off the chair laughing when writers Mrighdeep Singh Lamba and Gautam Mehra, and producer Dinesh Vijan, gave me a narration. I was flipping especially over the love angle, which is so whacky and quirky. They have written it in a way that you will be convinced my character is in love with the chudail. Plus, the makers of the film are building a horror-comedy universe and I certainly wanted to be a part of it.”
