Talking about the importance of good casting for the leaing role, Hussain said, “An actor’s own qualities and personality traits always lend themselves to the screenplay. For instance, Kartik Aaryan as an actor and as a person is different from Allu sir. That has to be factored in while writing the screenplay. The way a film is conceived in the South industries is also different from the way we do it in Bollywood. As a writer, I have had to work around that each time I have adapted a film from one language into another.”
