The most exciting part about the film is Ranveer’s double role. The actor, who gave his career’s most commercial performance in Shetty’s Simmba, is playing a double role for the first time on-screen. Not just this, actor Varun Sharma, who was seen in Shetty’s Dilwale, also has a double role as the aide of Ranveer’s characters.

The daily quoted a source close to the production mentioning that it’s the story of identical twins who were separated from each other. “Each twin also has an identical attendance essayed by Varun. The laugh riot will trace how the foursome cross paths, leading to a case of mistaken identity and confusion. While Rohit has stayed true to the outline of the source material he has introduced new plot twists and characters. The film will be Rohit’s take on The Comedy of Errors and have his signature brand of humour,” the source added.
