Abhishek, tell us something about the audition process before zeroing in on these three actors?
AK: This film required three main characters who share an equal level of chemistry with each other. To get that combination was almost a dream because today, you can go wrong even while casting one actor. We realised that we had to audition the three actors together because individually they may be great, but they should come across as friends when they are acting together. We went through a lot of auditions and the casting director, Mukesh Chhabra should be given the credit. When we auditioned three of them on a street — it was a good four-five minute shot — they became the characters; it felt like that they had been friends for years whereas in reality, they had just met.
So, Amit, Raj Kumar and Sushant, tell us a little about the characters you play in the film.
Amit Sadh: I play Omi, a priest's son who has grown up doing kirtans, aartis and Surya namaskars. He is a sweetheart for his friends.
Physically, he is very powerful and you feel that he knows everything but mentally, he doesn't have any sense of direction. He tries finding that through his friends and emulates Ishaan (Sushant Singh Rajput), who he is crazy about.
Raj Kumar: I play Govind Patel, a very ordinary, relatable Gujarati boy. He doesn't have any desires in his life except to be a successful businessman. All his energies are targeted only towards making money. He is the mind of the group. There is a love story in the film too...
AS: He never forgets to tell that he gets the girl in the end (laughs).
RK: That is something I am really proud of (laughs).
