Elaborating on the same, Vardhan shared: "I had received a call from casting director Vicky Sidana regarding 'Dashmi'. He told me that he wants me to get a narration from the director. I loved his confidence in the subject as he told me that post the narration I will definitely say yes to the film. He made me meet the director Shantanu Tambe, and that’s when the ball got rolling."

The actor further mentioned, “When I heard the last 15 minutes of the film, I immediately told Shantanu sir that I do not know anything about the project apart from the climax. But just on the basis of his narration that completely shook me up, I said that I would like to submit to his vision. That moment onwards we started the journey of making this film. It was a heart-wrenching and very emotionally challenging journey.”
