The film is directed by Ravi Udyawar and being produced by Sri Devi’s husband and actor Anil Kapoor’s elder brother and famous producer Boney Kapoor.

It is to be noted that the actress marked her comeback with the critically acclaimed and financially successful English Vinglish over four years back. The movie directed by Gauri Shinde, who then went on to make Dear Zindagi, got rave reviews and was appreciated for its story and acting.
