Clarifying his stance on the rumours around the film and his involvement, Irrfan said in a statement, “I’m not sure where these rumours are coming from. I was approached for the film almost two years ago, but since then there’s been no conversation on dates, so how does the question of me not having time or walking out of the film even come from?”

He further added, “I think that’s a mystery I would first like to solve - who are these well-wishers who are speaking my mind without me even being aware?”
