Best remembered for his Marathi film Dombivli Fast, Kamat is not new to acting. He has done a Marathi film Saatchya Aat Gharat (2004) that he also penned besides some other projects earlier in his career. He has also acted in Prawal Raman’s thriller 404 in the past.

After working with him, Mitu believes that Nishikant is as good an actor as a director. “I needed someone who is unconventional, intense, mature yet vulnerable. I had seen him years ago on television and felt he fitted the role.” After O Re Manvaa and Bawra Mann, she is working towards her third film to complete her trilogy.
