Karan Johar saw a few rushes of the film and he was sure Saqib had spunk. Karan was keen to cast him in his film. While working on the casting of BOMBAY TALKIES, Karan suggested Saqib's name and when he auditioned for the screen test, he fit the bill perfectly.

In MDKM, Saqib plays the role of a notorious son who steals his father's car which is a Maruti, and somehow loses the car. Karan liked the way Saqib emoted and was sure he has the ability of becoming a star.
