During her appearance on the US chat show Live with Kelly and Ryan, the actress revealed that the character Nick essays was supposed to be given to a random actor. As the movie was shot during the COVID-19 pandemic, she was dreading shooting the scene with an unknown actor.

As luck would have it Nick was visiting her in London at the time to help her settle down as she was going to spend over a-year-and-a-half there. It was then that the director James C Strouse suggested that Nick, who has acted in movies like the Jumanji franchise, could be casted for the role. Quoted by Hindustan Times, Priyanka added, “So our director Jim, was like ‘Well, since Nick is in town, and he is an actor, would you mind if we asked him.’ And I was like ‘Yes! I will do it, I will ask him.’ Because that was comfortable saliva. It is familiar”
