Confirming the news Sanjay said, "Sakshi had come with his mother to meet me 2-3 years ago and he stayed in my mind. So, when I had this romantic musical script, I decided to cast him. He is a striking boy , who is passionate about acting and has a lot of star value, being Vinod Khanna's son. He looks identical to him in so many ways.
