During the trailer launch of Diwale, Kajol revealed that it was her daughter Nysa who convinced her to take up the role. Kajol was quoted as saying, “Nysa told me, ‘Mom you have to do this film’ and I was like, ‘Baby I’m going to be out of town, I will be going for this outdoor shoot, I’m not going to spend time with you’. She insisted, ‘Mom I want you to do a film where you’re not crying. Do a film which is filled with fun and laughter, which I can watch without any stress’. And so I said, ‘Okay, fine I’ll do it’.
