The 30 August 2019 release is close to Karan Johar-backed Brahmastra, starring Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt. Brahmastra will be release on 15 August 2019.
The film also marks the second collaboration between Tiwari and Fox Star Studios, who had backed Dangal (2016).
In April this year, Mumbai Mirror had reported that Tiwari had finalised on Sushant Singh Rajput for a story about a student drama. Set in an engineering college, the story revolves around the protagonist's encounters with the successes and failures in his life.
While Rajput is currently involved in Abhishek Chaubey's Son Chiriya, he also has Tarun Mansukhani's Drive, and Abhishek Kapoor's Kedarnath lined up for this year.
Tweeting the announcement about his next on his account, Tiwari promised that he will be making an announcement about the cast soon.
Looking forward to being a part of the #SajidNadiadwala and #FoxStarStudios family for my next, after Dangal. A story I am excited to tell. Releases on 30th August 2019. Cast to be announced soon, stay tuned! @NGEMovies @foxstarhindi— Nitesh Tiwari (@niteshtiwari22) May 24, 2018
