    "It was important that we stay true to the narrative; here, the city is not a mere backdrop but a quasi-character. Ishaan and Ananya worked for months with dialogue coaches to get their twang right. When you see them in the film, you will believe that he is a taxi driver, and she, a girl on the run. Their diction gave a touch of realism to the film," said Khan.
