Talking to HT, Mamik Singh revealed, “The director (Ranjit M Tiwari) came to me with a request to do this role of Akshay’s brother in the film. He said he wanted to explore another aspect of brotherhood. After some time, I agreed to be part of it and left for Scotland with the team.” He then added, “All the scenes of this exploration of the relationship between brothers didn’t even make it to the final cut. I even had a conversation with the director, asking him why he brought me to Scotland for such a small role. Believe me, I wanted to get out of Scotland so bad.”
He also said, “I have also worked with Manoj Bajpayee in Despatch. But again, I am not interested in it. Jo thodha bahut bhi kar raha hun woh bhi bahut jaldi hi end ho jayega.” Calling himself a reluctant actor, he quipped, “Mere ko na pehle shauk tha, na aaj shauk hai. I am not even interested in telling people about my upcoming projects or things like mere mein bahut potential hai. I never intended to do that when I started my career, and that is true even today, or seek any milega. I was a very reluctant actor. I hate the goddamn camera.”
