Unlike the first part of the film, the lead actor Abhay Deol was missing in the second where Sonakshi took the lead. Talking about the same, Karan Johar, during an interview said, “Every actor has his own fan following. But, this is a completely new film with Sonakshi and other actors. Obviously, if Abhay Deol would have been there it would given a continuity to the film.”
