According to sources, "Anubhav had decided on casting Taapsee Pannu while they were still shooting Mulk. It's a female-oriented subject that defies narratives typecasting women. It questions the society and will deliver a poignant message on world domination by women. Taapsee's protagonist will be a middle-class girl." Mulk was based on a real-life story where a Muslim family from a small town found itself in the middle of a controversy and tried their best to come out of it. The movie focused on some hard-hitting topics like Islamophobia, terrorism which is considered a taboo in society. Mulk also featured an impeccable cast with the likes of Rishi Kapoor Prateik Babbar, Rajat Kapoor, Ashutosh Rana, Neena Gupta among others.
