Chhabra was asked to find performers for the crime-action movie. He remembered how he eventually persuaded Anurag Kashyap to give Pankaj the role of Sultan.

According to Mukesh, “This has also been highlighted once or twice by Anurag Kashyap. Regarding Pankaj Tripathi, he wasn’t convinced he was unsure of his identity. I knew Pankaj Tripathi was a fantastic performer because we were both at NSD at about the same time. In plays, I had seen him,  I won’t mention the actor’s name but Anurag wanted someone else. He agreed to have both of them go through an audition once I persuaded him.”

Added he, “Pankaj was filming in the South when I called and asked him to come to Bombay. We conducted similar auditions for him and the other actor over the period of one day. I asked Anurag to let me know his choice before handing him the laptop with the tape and leaving the room. He stated that we should give Sultan to this actor since he is so good.”
