When asked how this choice was made, co-producer Ali Abbas Zafar shared, “It’s a performance-driven film and we decided to handpick Jaideep because he is an incredible actor. He perfectly fits the strong negative character in the film who is a typical Indian villain. He plays an important and significant part in the film, we look forward to working with him!”

Produced by Zee Studios, Ali Abbas Zafar and Himanshu Kishan Mehra, the film will release next year.
