Agnihotri considers Salman as his lucky mascot and had cast him in his earlier projects like Dil Ne Jise Apna Kahaa, Hello and Bodyguard. In Hello, Salman had a cameo. For his new project, the director says he has cast fresh faces. "This film is a political satire and the script demanded a fresh cast. We finished the first schedule in New Delhi in October. The second schedule will be shot in Mumbai soon," he said.
Agnihotri turned producer in 2008 with Hello, and later he produced the blockbuster Bodyguard, which turned out to be a blockbuster.
