Talking about the film and how it happened to him, Abhimanyu said: “It is an opportunity given by Rohit Shetty to play the antagonist in his film. Everything on the set was so larger-than-life.
“My character is not a typical baddie, he has his own ideology, does things for his people and is very real with an emotional undercurrent.”
“This is just an apt film for the audience to bounce back and live to get back to the normal cinema,” said the actor.
