He by no means responded. So then, I reached out to Rahul. I stated ‘Learn it’.” Speaking about Rahul Bhat’s response,  Anurag Kashyap stated, “His response, his response was enthusiastic. And never like an actor. And he was like, ‘Yeh Kaun kar raha hai [Who is working on this project?]’ I stated, ‘Karega [Are you interested?]’ He stated ‘Me?’ I stated, ‘Sure, however you’ll have to give all of it’. And he was imagined to do some movies. He gave eight months of his life to Kennedy.” 

On Rahul Bhat’s bodily transformations, Anurag Kashyap stated, “As a result of Rahul is a skinny man. He bulked up for it. He grew a beard. I stated ‘You need to be sleepless’. And he did not sleep at evening till one and a half months later. After that, he pulled himself by way of it. After that, he grew a beard and regarded unhygienic. And that is once I stated you might be doing the position. His devotion, his sincerity, his whole give up to the position was unimaginable.”
