In addition to Kumar, the upcoming action comedy also stars Kriti Sanon, Jacqueline Fernandez, Arshad Warsi, Riteish Deshmukh, Prateik Babbar, and Pankaj Tripathi in principal roles. In the film, Kumar essays the character of a gangster, who aspires to be an actor. Sanon, on the other hand, plays a journalist, who wishes to be a director and Warsi a struggling actor.
