The male lead of this movie will be played by Vineet Kumar Singh. Anurag Kashyap and Vineet are teaming up again after their earlier union at Mukkabaaz. They were also seen together on Ugly, Bombay Talkies and Gangs of Wasseypur. Vineet expressed about his role in Sand ki Aankh by saying, “I have an exciting and important part in Sand Ki Aankh, something I have never played before. Our director, Tushar, saw Mukkabaaz two days before reaching out to me. He was eager to have me on board. I went and auditioned for the role, and landed the part. The film explores the early life of the ‘revolver dad’ and how they become such fine sportswomen. My character has a sports element attached; he is someone who was pivotal to the journey of Chandro and Prakashi Tomar.”
