Helmed by Abhishek Varman, the epic period drama is going to be set in the 1940s, around the hard times faced by India and Pakistan. With several ruins and offset colours, the poster of the film gave off major old-world vibes. The poster also announced the release date of the flick, i.e. April 19, 2019. Also, the Dhak-Dhak girl Madhuri replaced Sridevi after her untimely demise in Dubai on February 24, this year. The film was actually conceptualised by Johar’s father, Yash, nearly 15 years ago.
