Reportedly, the makers had initially approached South actress Rashmika Mandanna to play the leading lady’s role opposite Shahid Kapoor. Rashmika rejected the offer though. The Kannada beauty revealed, “If I am part of a film, it has to be because I need to give in to the film. I will not accept any project to which I feel I can't give a lot to. Jersey remake was huge. Anyone would do it but then I don't want to come to set and be all tired. I feel they (the film's makers) deserve more. Someone who can give in energy," Rashmika concluded.
