In an interview, Randeep said, "I absolutely could have died. I was in such a bad state. I [will] try to contractually bind people, if I’m going to attempt something like that (again)." He said that when the previous producers shelved the film, he lost all of his muscle bulk. He recalled passing out and collapsing off his horse and his calf was flexed at a perfect angle to his thigh, revealing how weak he might have been. 

He explained what happens when one restricts themselves to meals for an extended time, he could not even walk. Then, with the help of a physiotherapist, he began practicing walking on a treadmill underwater. He said that he had a scene in the film where his character, Mr Savarkar, escapes to France. This training was critical for that.
