Says a source, "Sujoy prefers to call himself the creative producer than just a producer, but even when it comes to direction, he takes a call. After his project, the Hindi adaptation of The Devotion of Suspect X did not take off, he turned his attention to 'Te3n'."

Ribhu earlier directed the Naseeruddin Shah-Mahie Gill starrer 'Michael' that never saw light of day, though it was showcased at the Toronto film festival in 2011. Apart from assisting Kashyap on 'Gulal' (2009), he has also directed the filmmaker's TV production, 'Yudh' (2014), starring the Big B.

Sujoy however maintains, "Why would I direct Ribhu's film? He is more than capable himself. More importantly, if I pull any such silly stunt, Amitji, Vidya and Nawaz will take my case. They signed the film for Ribhu, not me."
