Revealing the details of designing Arjun Kapoor's look, Sanah said, "I sat with Dibakar and had a long discussion about each and every character, be it Arjun Kapoor to Dinkar to Sejal. He was very much precise about hair, makeup, beard. He was the one who gave importance to hair, wardrobe, makeup. I sat with him and we use to have long Discussions on the appearances of the characters. Arjun's character is of Haryanvi Police officer. We gave him a kind of rough, strong tanned look in this film. It looks really good on the screen and he has done an amazing job. I think he carried himself really good and his hair was short infact Hakim was with me and we all had a great experience working together with Arjun and even Parineeti.”
