Trapped was shot in less than a month in Mumbai in 2016.
In an interview to news agency PTI, Rajkummar Rao said: "It was physically and mentally exhausting for me to live in that space for almost 18-20 days, to eat nothing. Trust me, it's scary to hell. If you don't eat for two days you feel so frustrated, angry on everything."
He told IANS: "Trapped is an emotional story, though it is one of its kind and something that has not been tried before. Luckily, we shot it in a linear pattern. So, I just had to live the character every day as it came. Despite challenges, it was an organic process. That's the fun of being an actor. I could challenge myself and explore so much despite being confined in that house."
