Opening up about his preparation, he added that he grew his hair long and picked up some rapping skills from artists like Honey Singh and Badshah.

Mohammad Nazim on returning to films after 7 years

Speaking to IANS, he said that he was looking for a film with a good script and he was unable to find one until now. “I had planned to do films, but the lockdown happened. I wanted to do a film with a good script, as it’s a very important aspect of any project. I was not able to find a script I was looking for so it took a little time,” he added.

About his entry into Punjabi cinema rather than Bollywood, the actor said, “I was born and raised in Punjab. Punjabi is my language, and I've always desired to work in Punjabi films. And now as the Punjabi film industry has also started gaining significant prominence in the country, it's a great time and opportunity for me to be a part of it. Also, I think we must equally support all the regional cinemas the same way we support Bollywood.”
