This is the first time Juhi and Shabanaji will share screen space. Earlier, in an interview to IANS Juhi had said, "It was exciting for me. I worked with her for the first time and of course she's a very accomplished actress. I had heard about her; how she goes on a set and how she familiarises herself with the surroundings to utilize the place well along with her character. I secretly tried to learn something from her on the sets." (Also Read: Sonu Nigam Denies Asking Chalk N Duster Makers For Fee After Waiving it)
