The new additions to the star cast include Nikitin Dheer and Kannada star Sudeep as the antagonists.

The first shooting schedule of the film was shot at Maheshwar in Madhya Pradesh. Salman also released a few pictures of the location and his look from the film on social media. A report in Mumbai Mirror also confirmed that Salman will be seen performing a special dance number titled Munna Badnaam Hua. Earlier, Malaika Arora had performed the hit number Munni Badnam Hui in the original instalment.

Dimple recently made headlines for bagging a Christopher Nolan film, Tenet. Mumbai-based talent manager Purvi Lavingia Vats had revealed in an IANS interview that Dimple was auditioned by the casting director and Nolan.
