According to Times Of India, R Balki who has directed Sunny Deol, Dulquer Salmaan and Shreya Dhanwanthary starrer Chup: Revenge Of The Artist spoke about the unique casting of the film. According to Balki, Salmaan is one of the most nuanced actors that he has witnessed in Indian cinema. So he thought a role like this needed someone like him. The director added that he is glad that the actor liked the script and agreed to do it.
According to the filmmaker, Deol has never done a role that is more silent but powerful rather than full dialogue-baazi which he usually does. It is also nice to see a person back looking fit, happy and good. This pairing was quite interesting for him. They are almost like two new people coming together
Chup: Revenge Of The Artist will release on September 23
