Abhinay Deo's upcoming quirky comedy shares a connection to his 2011 comic entertainer Delhi Belly. While the posters of Blackmail feature the star cast covering their faces with bra and panty paper bags, the poster of Delhi Belly too featured Shenaz Treasurywala with a brown paper bag.

The poster of Aamir Khan Productions' Delhi Belly had Shenaz Treasurywala covering her face with a paper bag as she gets held in the case of diamonds. A paper bag is yet again seen in Abhinay Deo's upcoming directorial Blackmail as Irrfan Khan is seen covering his face with a bra and panty paper bag not only in the posters but also the teaser.
