Karan Razdan said, “I narrated her something but at the moment she is wanting to do something that’s non-serious. She has had too much of serious stuff. We spoke at length. Maybe tomorrow, I may have that kind of a script for her. But at the moment, I wanted her to play the role of an actress of the 1960s. The film dealt with alcoholism and tragedy.”

Karan Razdan has also approached Madhuri Dixit but she is also not interested on the project. Karan said that the only actor, who showed willingness to work on the project was Sunny Leone. Although Karan Razdan has doubt over Sunny Leone's ability to perform in the film.

Karan said “I think the only one, who is courageous enough and said to me, ‘When can we start this film?’, has been Sunny Leone. It scares… It didn’t scare Vidya for sure. In fact, she believes she was Meena Kumar in past life. But the point is that it would need courage. I have narrated it to Madhuri but it didn’t work out for one reason or the other. Sunny came along, she said she had heard about this film and wanted me to narrate it. I met her at her house, had a long narration. I don’t know… She is not the ideal choice, I would say. But she was the most enthusiastic (about doing the role). I guess, she also saw this as her big chance.”
