About the hugely popular Netflix TV series, Vijay recalled how the casting director had locked him for a major role but then director Anurag Kashayp changed his mind at the last minute and he did not feature in it.
About the same, Vijay said (via), "They had locked me for one of the parts, one of the significant parts, and Netflix and Mukesh (Chhabra, casting director), and everyone had zeroed in, but Anurag (Kashyap, co-director) changed his mind last minute and he threw me out.”
