Tamhankar will be seen a very basic realistic look in the film. 

"You'll see me in a very natural look in this film — no make-up and no hairstyle. I am already enjoying the process of making this film. I have this lovely feeling that you when you go to a workshop for the first time," said Tamhankar about starting work on the film.

The actress is also excited about attempting something different from what she has done so far in her career.

Kundalkar and Tamhankar have earlier worked together in Vazandar in 2016. 

Actors Tanmay Kulkarni, Bhupendra Singh Jadawat and Gaurav Ghatnekar are also part of the film's cast.
