Producer Mahesh Kothare talks about the selction of Ajinkya, "For the role of Vithu Mauli we needed a fresh face, as we knew that the existing actors might not be accepted as Vithu Mauli. So we started our hunt for the new & fresh actor. We conducted almost 550 auditions and we could not come close enough to finalize the actor. Then our team went to Pandharpur and requested almighty Vithu Mauli himself to provide success to our efforts. Our team came back in Mumbai and the next day we found our Vithu Mauli in the form of actor Ajinkya Raut. He is a good actor as well as his eys are very expressive. His looks perfectly suits the godly character of Vithu Mauli."
