It was definitely a challenge, but it was a challenge that was a very exciting one to accept.

Asked if he had to learn Punjabi for his character, Farhan said:

In bits and pieces. I mainly focussed on dialogues and certain improvisations within scenes. But of course I had to, because there is a very distinct Punjabi flavour to the whole film.
