The film will star Yasir Nawaz, Feroze Khan and Mawra Hocane in lead roles where as Javed Sheikh and Ahmed Hassan in supporting roles. Besides Yasir himself, both Javed Sheikh and Ahmed Hassan were in Wrong No 2 as well which was released this year on Eid ul Fitr. Ahmed Hasan will be seen doing a comic role in this one too. Feroze Khan is one of the top stars when it comes to television screens however in 2020 actor is coming back to silver screens with Tich Button and Yasir Nawaz directorial.
