Director Kookie Gulati shares his experience of working with the cast, he says, “Casting for 'Dhokha' was crucial and very challenging. I needed four people for the film, and if you've seen it, you can't tell who is the hero or the heroine because it keeps changing. There were so many surprises and some special demands for filming it in the home setting. Even if Shahrukh Khan was in the film, I would have shot it at home only.

He further said, "For me there was no need or scope for any change in the story. The script dictated it's needs, not mine. The intention was to make a real and true film in itself. It was during that time that I met Bhushan ji. who liked the story and also the script and his team supported it. We signed the film, but then Covid came, causing chaos. Meanwhile, I got a call from him that Maddy and Khushali were about to do a film which didn't get made, and so he asked if I would like to tell him about the film. I always wanted Maddy to play the husband. I had also approached them in 2017 for 'Dhokha - - -' but could not produce it due to lack of support. But when I heard that Maddie was interested in this project, I was thrilled because he is a superstar. After meeting Khushali, I realized her immense hunger for her part and I wanted a new face to play the heroine so that the mystery remains. The casting seemed phenomenal. Casting Aparshakti was also a real challenge because we had never seen him play a character like Dhokha before."
