Saif Ali Khan said about the film in a statement, "Kaalakaandi is a film I'm so happy to be a part of! It's a cross section of Mumbai with underworld goons, doomed bankers and idealistic lovers all mixed together in this karmic tale about love, crime and living a lifetime in one night!! Akshat has written and directed this unique movie.... and he is probably the only voice who tells it exactly like it actually is.... Mumbai is a crazy, beautiful city and he is captured it perfectly in this very fun and very moving film!!"
Saif Ali Khan, who has been seen in offbeat films like Being Cyrus and Go Goa Gone playing offbeat characters, was specifically kept in mind while writing the crazy role of Kaalakaandi, says Cinestaan.
