According to the media, Farhan to get into the skin of the character, isolated himself from his friends and family and also switched off his cell phone. He also learned to solve the Rubik's cube, an activity which his character completes in only one try.
Farhan in an interview said "It was the nature of the character I was playing; he’s someone who’s lost in his own world, due to which I had to disconnect myself from the world. I made an effort to isolate myself from everyone. It’s just for the sake of my character; if you want to call it method acting, so be it"
Farhan is in quite an awe about the chemistry between him and Deepika in the movie. Deepika when asked about her role said "My role is quite bold and optimistic as opposed to Farhan’s pessimistic one." Deepika had undergone a lot of changes too, for instance she changed her hairstyle and the audience will see her having shoulder length hair in the movie.
