The series also features actors Gul Panag, Swastika Mukherjee and Neeraj Kabi. The series has been shot in various parts of the country (around 110 cities). Sudeep Sharma in a media interview had earlier said that for the concept of the series, the three classes- the upper, middle and lower has been associated with the three Loks- Swarg Lok (heaven), Dharti Lok (earth) and Paatal Lok (netherworld), respectively.
Meanwhile, the show has received appreciation from many celebrities, including Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli (also husband of Anushka Sharma).
