In the film , he will be seen donning high waisted trousers, bold striped shirts, with buckled straps.

"I referred to a lot of family albums from my family and also the team members. Everybody was in sync they were all wanting to show how things were in late 80s and 90s and the director and bunch of people from the team brought their pictures and we were all looking at pictures how it looked and how things were in 80s and 90s.

"We took references mostly from real places, real people so that it doesn't look fabricated creation of another film. So that was mainly the inspiration we looked at it - college campus pictures, student pictures, family pictures of real people of our albums."
