Mohit suri, The director of the film, explained the experience on the set when he said, " It is never easy to film a movie when you make it based on a book. To show a journey of 13 years of The boy and the girl wouldnt had been a easy task without my writers. We kept a note on each and every point, from situations to places they visit, and then we created this 3 hour movie."
Shraddha Kapoor who plays Riya Somani, shared her part of the experience as she said,"Arjun was so much into the character of Madhav Jha, that even after the shoot, He use to stay in the character and talk or text me in Bhojpuri.
