Director Anil Sharma said, “It’s a story about the confrontation between two geniuses, and even though both of them are right in their own way, but their point of views are very different. The best part about the film is the freshness of the young pair and the confrontation scenes between Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Utkarsh Sharma according to me.”

Working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui was like a dream come true, said Utkarsh Sharma. Talking about his experience of working with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Utkarsh said, “I have followed his work from the time when he did the role of a supporting character in a film called New York. He’s a natural actor who makes you forget that you’re watching him in a film, it feels like you’re watching him in real life. While working with him in Genius, I had doubts about myself as I had to act in front of him, but you know, when he enters the set, he comes as a character not as the legend or the enigma he is. So, in a way he makes your work easy because it’s the character you’re speaking to. When you improvise your dialogues with an actor like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, it feels like you have earned a degree.”
