After reading the script, I asked him whether he was sure about casting me as the lead. Because I couldn’t imagine myself in this role. I lost weight and shaved off my moustache in preparation for the role. But, initially, I found it difficult to understand the fighter pilot character. So I took basic flying lessons and spent some time with real fighter pilots, which increased my respect by manifolds for them. I feel very, very honoured to be playing a fighter pilot,” as per reports in Indian Express. As for Aditi Rao, it was always her dream to work with Mani Sir.
