According to producer Vikram M Shah, “We have adopted various green practices like reducing or eliminating the use of plastic during the pre-production, shooting and post-production, reducing power and electricity consumption, eliminating the use of fossil-fuels, using hybrid sources of power, eliminating the use of non Eco-friendly paints, products and items during set construction, using only Eco-friendly products and adopting several other procedures and practices like shutting down air-conditioners when not required to reduce the ecological footprint of our film. There is so much more, we would be more than happy to share with media persons how we managed to make this film 100 per cent Eco-friendly and a “green” project.”

Mukesh Bhatt and Vijay Raaz are the other two gangsters in the project. “It is not a general purpose masala product,” says Hemant Nilim Das, director of the film.
