“We are extremely excited by this joint venture. Nikkhil (Advani) and his team are creatively and technically extremely competent. Milap (Zaveri) has the pulse of masses and classes and has written a racy script with extremely powerful scenes and dialogues. John (Abraham) and Manoj (Bajpayee) are a perfect fit in their respective roles and it is no surprise that they came on board instantly,” Bhushan Kumar, head of T-Series, said in a statement.
Advani too expressed his pleasure at the venture, saying, “T-Series is the best studio to present this film as they provide producers like me the best in class marketing support and exhaustive distribution reach to our audiences. We trust them fully and are very pleased to have them on board.”
This would be just Zaveri’s third directorial venture after Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai (2010) and Mastizaade (2016).
