Madhur Mittal says that it used to take two to three hours every day to put on the make-up on the sets of the authentic biopic. “From hairstyle to skin tone, director MS Sripathy sir took great care in all aspects. I also have to thank our make-up team for their contributions. They did make-up for two to three hours in a diligent manner,” Madhur says in the video.

Madhur adds that the videos available on the internet were used to capture the detailed look of Muralidaran, his body language and his bowling style. “I saw all the videos of Muralidaran online. Some others were taken from his personal archives. A bowling coach helped me with the nuances. He trained me for a few days. After completing the shoot of a film I was working on, each day, I practiced bowling for two to three hours in my free time,” says Madhur, also explaining that his elbow is a bit like Muralidaran’s because he had an accident a few years ago.
