Karan Malhotra reveals, “It isn’t something that we made out of thin air. Since he is playing a Catholic in the film, my crew went into small Bandra bylanes and met people. They clicked pictures of their tattoos. We have taken inspiration from the locals — how they dress, how they talk, the kind of tattoos they have, etc.”

Karan further added, ” In the film, Akshay has a Jesus tattoo on his arm and a cross on his wrist. A lot of other things in his tattoo designs are for impact. Akshay plays a physics teacher with a hidden past. As a physics teacher, he looks like an ordinary man. But when he takes his shirt off, his tattoos depict a story of a violent, turbulent and traumatic past.”
