Dinesh, who has backed films around round real-life issues like premature balding (Bala), livein relationship before marriage (Luka Chuppi) and the trials of a parent wanting to give his child the best education in Hindi Medium and the upcoming Angrezi Medium, told the daily, “This innovative idea also came from real life though it is not inspired by any incident in particular. We have spun it into a crazy comedy with our unique tadka." Recalling how he was in talks with Raj and Kriti for another film, The filmmaker said, “That project wasn’t working out, so, one day, over a cup of coffee, I sketched out this idea to them and they jumped at it. Raj and Kriti came on board even before the script was written.”
Further, talking about Raj's exceptional comic timing, Dinesh pointed out, “You saw it in Stree, you will see it in our upcoming horror comedy, Roohi Afzana, and in this one as well.
Kriti also had you laughing in Bareilly Ki Barfi, Luka Chuppi and Housefull 4." The filmmaker is also excited to have Paresh and Dimple on board.
For the unversed, the film will mark the debut of 28-year-old Gujarati director Abhishek Jain, who has been associated with Sanjay Leela Bhansali on Chenab, Gandhi and Guzaarish.
“It’s always been our policy to back new directors, be it Amar Kaushik who gave us Stree and Bala, Laxman Utekar who came good with Luka Chuppi and is currently directing Mimi, and Hardik Mehta who will keep you engaged in Roohi Afzana. With Abhishek at the helm, we are looking forward to a roller-coaster ride that children and parents can watch together,” Dinesh signed off by saying.
