It seems Chhalaang has enjoyed working with kids a lot. Talking about his experience, director Hansal Mehta said he took Shekhar Kapur's advice who made films like Masoom and Mr. India. Kapur in an interview had said "Set them free" that stuck with Mehta. "They were great fun and that is visible on screen. The relationship that they had developed with Raj, Nushrratt & Zeeshan makes the film come alive,” he added. Film's male lead Rajkummar Rao seconded his director saying “I had a great time with the children on the sets of Chhalaang, both on camera and off camera." According to him, the kids are the real stars - "natural, phenomenally talented".
