Since NAUTANKI SAALA! revolves around a stage production, Ayushmann was asked if it was difficult for him to make a transition from theatre to films. He said, "I think every medium is very difficult. Theatre has long shots. The entire body language matters whereas in films, only your face is on the screen. So, you have to be subtle. I had gotten too used to anchoring so Rohan Sippy (the director) made us do workshops and by the end of that period, we remembered all the dialogues. I had to unlearn a lot of stuff."
