A source said: "Fatima did multiple readings with Abhishek Sharma and worked on her body language to mould herself in the role before the film went on floor. She has completely transformed herself for the film, the audiences will be in for a real treat!" The director revealed that Fatima's character has a dual personality. He said, "Her character has a dual personality for which we needed an actor who could play vulnerable, mysterious and assertive with equal ease."
From setting up a massive set in Film City recreating chawls of Mumbai to exquisite, old libraries, the film, which is a Zee Studios production, has been been shot entirely in Mumbai. "'Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari' is a unique family comedy that draws humour from the quirks of its refreshing yet relatable characters. The world is set in the innocence of 1990s when there was no social media or mobile phones," said Sharma.
About the film, Shariq Patel, CEO, Zee Studios, shared, "It's a new and unique concept, a mad family comedy with a powerful cast that will definitely entertain the audiences! We are happy to associate with Abhishek as the captain of this ship."
