"I had done theatre during my student days with Abhishek [Sharma]. He had this fuzzy image of me and that it resembled Osama," said Pradhuman. "Though Abhishek had moved to Mumbai, he managed to locate me. He began with a show reel of Osama and said this is what I want you to be in the film. I was taken aback! A look test followed and the resemblance was uncanny."
"Initially I did have apprehensions about doing the role and if there would be any backlash, but it was just for a movie."
