In an interview with an entertainment daily, Nawazuddin shared that when he read the script of Motichoor Chaknachoor, his character Pushpinder, oddly, straight-laced and unintentionally funny, stood out for him. The Sacred Games actor thought the most interesting thing about his role was his desperation to get married, and how it drives him a little crazy pushing him down idiotic lanes of life.
