Model-turned-actor Esha Gupta who was seen with Emraan Hashmi in Jannat 2 goes deglam for the film. She too plays the cop. The actress worked hard to shed her glamourous image. She has even done some action scenes including a helicopter stunt which was shot in Pachmarhi.
"I adore Prakash sir and there was no way I'd say no. But once I was in Bhopal, I felt like I was back in school with him as a strict principal. And what made me even more nervous was that my first scene was with Om Puri
, a National Award-winning actor," she had said.
"Fortunately, the shoot went off well, I think Prakash
is happy with my work. I was lucky I could flashback to those meetings with Kiran Bedi, watch and listen to her interviews online to make my character more real," she added.
"This is an extremely topical film as it's set against the backdrop of Naxalism, yet, it's a beautiful story about two friends," says Arjun.
While Abhay Deol plays the role of a young rebel, newcomer Anjali Patil plays a Naxalite leader. Manoj Bajpayee also essays the role of a Naxalite leader with guts of steel. Om Puri plays the role of a professor.
