Emraan, who had to put on weight for the character that he is portraying in the political thriller, said he gorged on pasta to gain a small paunch.
Dibakar wanted Emraan to play a role of a small town boy, a street smart character in the movie. To suit best, Emraan underwent complete makeover. During the shoot of the movie, Emraan spotted a small paunch and buck tooth as well. He had loads of Pasta on director Dibakar Banerjee's advice which helped in making that paunch look very obvious.
Director Dibakar spoke about Emraan character, "His character in the movie is such that, he is always on the lookout to make money and once in a while does underground night shoots. If he sees a girl, he will talk to her into getting a photo shoot done. Actually, he is a very lovable character with tremendous depth. Hope you all enjoy the movie."
