It was planned at first that Vera's husband would have a much larger role in the film. Mikhail Svetin
was offered the role but later on, the filmmakers dropped the idea. Afterwards, Aleksandr Fatyushin
was cast. His character was supposed to keep choosing between his wife and his motorcycle and the two characters would keep quarreling because of this. Some scenes with Akhedzhakova and Fatyushin were even filmed but then Fatyushin went down with a serious illness that required surgery. In the end, Vera's husband appears in the film only as a voice on the phone. See more
