An insider said, “The team, led by director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, had previously written multiple drafts, but they did not appeal to Farhan and Ritesh. When this idea was presented, they lapped it up, and the writers’ team soon sat down to develop it further. The production house has reached out to the principal actors, asking them to block their dates in October. Since the film requires combination dates of five actors, the studio felt it was best to sound them off in advance. The pre-production will kick off as soon as the current situation stabilises.” Also Read - Fukrey Returns Actor Richa Chadda Chosen Over Swara Bhaskar and Huma Qureshi For Shakeela Biopic
