In an interview with BollywoodHungama, Tusshar revealed that he was quite apprehensive initially when he was approached for the role by Neeraj Bohra.The actor shared that at that time there were just three characters because it was inspired from a play and Bohra told him that they are creating a new fourth character.
Tusshar said that initially they thought that they would do it through sign language but when they started shooting for the film, his tutor Vikas Kadam and Rohit decided to do something different. They said ‘Let’s do a mute character who can hear’. Tusshar shared that when you go to a temple or any place, you meet such people who know what things sound like. He made it clear that he is not trivialising it but those people know what things sound like. They wanted to play that character and then it happened.

Elaborating further, Tusshar added that his co-stars Ajay Devgn, Sharman Joshi, Arshad Warsi, Paresh Rawal, all were experts in comedy. He was skeptical about what his silent character would do. However, it was his faith in the director and the entire team, there was something about that package that was very promising and decided to close his eyes and take a leap of faith.
In another interview with the Firstpost, the actor shared how his co-star Arshad Warsi always had faith in him. Tusshar recalled Arshad telling him right in the beginning that his character will be a surprise packet. According to him, people like this character because of the space he gets to show his craziness, and that’s only because of his co-stars. Tusshar shared that they have never had an issue with letting his character steal the limelight in certain places. The actor added that Ajay Devgn is the biggest star, but he is such a secure person. He gives freedom to every actor and lets their characters flourish. It also goes on to show how generous Arshad is. He is such a talented and comic hero on his own.
