The film is directed by Kookie Gulati and also stars Ileana D’Cruz in a pivotal role. Sharing the 'Mahurat shot' clapboard picture on Instagram, Bachchan wrote, "Here we go! A new journey, a new beginning. Need your best wishes. @ajaydevgn #KookieGulati @anandpandit."
Many Bollywood actors wished the trio by commenting on the post, including Anil Kapoor, Suniel Shetty, Sonu Sood, and Bipasha Basu.
Talking about the project, a source told Mumbai Mirror, "It is based on real events that took place between 1990 and 2000 and changed India’s financial fabric. Ajay loved the subject and immediately agreed to back it. Ileana has a very strong role in the film but isn’t paired opposite Abhishek. The team is on the lookout for an actress to be paired with him. The film will go on the floors by the year-end."This is director Kookie Gulati’s third film with the previous ones being Prince and Pyare Mohan.
