"Roy" needed a "character" and not a "lead actor", says its director Vikramjit Singh, who feels that Ranbir Kapoor fit the bill for it due to his risk-taking ability. Singh told IANS: "When you write a film, you have a wish list of actors ready. The role in 'Roy' is not a typical lead role. It's a character. I have seen Ranbir's work. He doesn't shy away from taking risks."We have seen him doing a film like 'Barfi!' in which he didn't have any dialogue. Also, his vision is different. He had faith in the film, and so he said yes to 'Roy'."
