In a recent interaction with ETimes, the director spoke about Ahan. He said,  ”I tested him a few times. I wanted to make sure that he would be able to carry off this performance and he surprised me with his intensity, passion, and discipline. He’s very grounded in life, very sensible, straightforward. I just said that let’s just do it, it’s something I’ve never done before, that’s a good enough reason to do it. And why not do a film with someone new for a change. It might bring a different kind of freshness in my mind, in my approach. How would I mould this boy? How would I present him to the world’? How would I make his journey smooth and interesting. I like challenges like that. I like to do things that I have never done before.”
