Shonali Bose shares, â€œThis is a film that is extremely close to my heart and I am glad to have such a stellar team on board. This is a dream star cast and I have found the best, most supportive producers in Ronnie and Sid. I am looking forward to a great journey ahead and hoping to give our audiences a truly memorable cinematic experience.â€For Ronnie and Sid, this is their sixth time working with Priyanka Chopra after collaborating on landmark films including Fashion, Kaminey, and Barfi.
Priyanka who will be back on screen with Farhan, 3 years after they were seen together in Dil Dhadakne Do,Â commentedÂ â€œI look forward to diving into this filmâ€¦it’s very special to me.Â As soon I read it, I knew I had to be a part of telling this story, so I’m wearing two hats on this oneâ€¦ as an actor and as a co-producer.Â In both aspects, I am equally excited to work with the amazing team of actors and technicians we have on board. Shonali is a formidable filmmaker and I can’t wait to see this story unfold in her expertise. I’m looking forward to working with Farhan, Ronnie and Sid again. All in all, it’s a great homecoming.â€
