The film marks his first collaboration with filmmaker Ram Madhvani, who is known for the Sonam Kapoor starrer 'Neerja, and the web series Aarya, starring Sushmita Sen.
"This for me is a miracle script and had me on the edge of my seat all through the narration. I knew this is the script that would give me the opportunity to explore a different side of me as an actor. I can’t wait to transport myself to Ram sir’s world and see his vision translate on the big screen. This is also the first time I am collaborating with Ronnie and RSVP, and I am looking forward to this journey,” the actor said in a statement.
