Paramvir Cheema, who plays the role of an angry cop, reveals how he had prepared for the role. Cheema said,  “It has been a dream come true to play a cop. Once I bagged the role, I decided to spend a couple of days with my father’s friend who is an ACP. Those two days of accompanying and observing a real police officer on the job inspired me to bring my own nuances to the character. Most importantly, I learnt the ropes of quick analysis and decision-making, a must for all cops,” 

Recalling another interesting story from the shooting days, he said, “Often while we were shooting on the streets, I would be mistaken for a real cop. There have been instances where I’ve received a salute from a police officer who thought I was his colleague on the job. In fact, every other person on the streets would think I am a real cop. Overall, it has been an eye-opening experience to learn and embody their grit in stressful situations.”
