Now in the press conference of IFFI, Majid Majidi said "I choose my subjects from the society... I choose my heroes from the crowd. I mostly work with newcomers, but this doesn't mean that I don't want to work with professional ones,"

He further added, "It was tough to organise things on the sets with a big star. For one day, we organised auditions with Deepika. I remember it was difficult to manage things as people wanted to meet her and were very curious,"

Well, now the things have been sort out between the filmmaker and the leading actress. This is to notice that Shahid Kapoor's brother Ishaan Khattar has made his silver screen debut with this film as a leading hero.
