A source from the sets says, `Kangna will play the main lead in the film and is slated to visit some of the red-light areas in Mumbai to prep for her role.

The director states, `Around 70 old mujra houses remain in south Mumbai. Some of my assistants have crossed the border as well to collect information about the dance form.`
