Boman Irani says he found Subhash Kapoor's vision as a director compelling and agreed to be a part of the film.

"I found the film very powerful. I found Subhash Kapoor's case very compelling. He is a very interesting man, who loves his cinema and has a was very fresh take." he said.

"More often than not I don't even ask what role I have, I listen to the story. I need to know what the director is trying to say. This is the most straight role I have done so far- there is not a moustache, grey hair or another accent," Boman added, referring to his roles in Lage Raho Munnabhai' and 3 Idiots.

The story follows a struggling lawyer named Jolly (played by Warsi), who wants to become India's greatest lawyer. He comes to Delhi in search of that and gets involved in a case with India's existing popular and expensive lawyer, Rajpal (played by Boman).

"In many ways it is a very powerful role. He is a superstar of lawyers and he is ruffled by a inconsequential lawyer. It is a story of hope, it is a story of an underdog. It is not my story and it does not make a difference to me. I am just happy to be part of a good film."
