The video begins with Shoojit saying, “The character has to be transformed in such a way that it doesn’t seem it is Amitabh Bachchan”. Producer Ronnie Lehri adds that it was a challenge to get this new look of the veteran actor.

“We had a reference image that we showed to Amitabh Bachchan. A lot of time would go into getting the prosthetic face, nose etc.”, said the director.

“Shooting with the prosthetics for close to 12 hours and sitting for around three hours for the make-up, a lot of credit goes to Bachchan saab for the character”, adds Ronnie.
