Vicky Kaushal: He plays to perfection the role of a true husband in the film.
Shishir Sharma: His role as Iqbal’s father, characterises his commitment to official duties prevailing over family.
Soni Razdan: Her role as Teji, Sehmat’s mother is only there.
Jaideep Ahlawat: His role as Khalid Mir, the Indian intelligence agent who imparts training to Alia, proves himself with his striking expressionless act.
Rajit Kapoor: Rajit Kapoor as Hidayat Khan, father of Sehmat induces the determination of taking forward the family legacy of being an Indian agent in his simple, college-going daughter so meticulously that you feel it as the right step.

Direction: The Director very well builds up the curiosity in the movie, exciting us with the fiery emotions & not gun-toting action.
