Naseeruddin Shah is donning the role called Surya Kanth. Though he is a senior actor, I could only see him in that character while acting with him. The story happens in 1980s. So the costumes of the actors and actresses will be pertaining to that period. I have worn 100 different dresses throughout this film. There is no message in this film. It is only an entertainer.”
