Uday Mahesh was originally to play Deepan’s role in The Family Man which was played by Azhagam Perumal but ended up bagging Chellam Sir. He told India Today, “I auditioned for that role. For two months, there was no response from the team. So, I thought it’s a lost opportunity. Later, they offered me Chellam sir. Even though it’s a small character, I decided to do it because The Family Man 1 was a huge hit. Also, my character has a comical touch, which pushed me to take it up.”
