Ali Kazmi plays a character of the male chauvinist, narcissist who is a believer in gender stereotypes. Kazmi related to his role in the movie said, “I will not describe too much about my role except that he’s a bit of a male chauvinist, narcissist, and a perfectionist. He’s not really negative. He’s just real because more than half than men I know would respond the way he does. You’ll see once you watch the film.”
