“When the first poster of this film came out last year, I was not even a part of the film,” says Vivaan who immediately made a WhatsApp group with his friends and decided to watch the film first-day first show. “I am a big fan of John Abraham, Emraan Hashmi and Sanjay sir’s work. Four months later, I was on the sets of the film as one of the cast members. I could not believe it. It was a surreal moment,” he adds.
It was Sanjay Gupta’s assistant, Nadeem, who showed Vivaan’s earlier work to him, which impressed the filmmaker and that’s when he decided to cast the actor in the period gangster drama.
Recounting the experience of working on his first film, Vivaan says, “John sir, Emraan sir, Suniel (Shetty) sir and the entire cast made sure that I was comfortable. It was a great learning experience from such talented actors. The biggest thing that I learned from them is humility. Despite their stardom, they never let me feel that I was a newcomer.”
