The film stars Ayushmann Khurrana and Jaideep Ahlawat in lead roles. Neeraj Madhav, Alexander Garcia, Mohd Talib, Hiten Patel, Rachit Jadoun, John Byrne, Jitendra Rai, and Neill Barnes all play important roles in the film alongside Akshay Kumar in the guest role. Malaika Arora and Nora Fatehi also made cameo cameos in the tracks Aap Jaisa Koi and Jehda Nasha, respectively. Although critics lauded the film for its innovative premise, it did not perform well at the box office. Now, the creators aim to distribute it on the OTT platform in order to reach a larger audience, as it is more than simply a one-time watch film.
