The Bollywood actor had earlier claimed that it was the most intensive role that he has played in his three-decade career. "Never experienced it before. Credit for it goes to Lawrence sir. He introduced me to a version of me which I didn't know existed. It was different from my other characters.

The upcoming film is a Tamil remake of hit film Muni 2: Kanchana. Kiara Advani is romancing Akshay Kumar in the movie, which also has Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, and Ashwini Kalsekar in the cast.
