The sets appear to be such that the characters in the drama seem engulfed in the mining dust around them, the mines undoubtedly central to the protagonist’s story.
Farhan Akhtar has taken up the distribution of the Hindi version of the film under his Excel Entertainment banner along with Anil Thadani. This move might prove to be a big boost to the Kannada industry. The film marks the debut of actor Yash in Hindi cinema who plays Rocky and also stars Srinidhi Shetty in the lead role.
