The team of VICKY DONOR, after its super success, producer John Abraham, director Shoojit Sircar and actor Ayushmann Khurrana immediately decided to make HAMARA BAJAJ. However, the trio got busy with their other respective projects & commitments. Later the film also got mired into controversy with respect to its title.
Though John was prohibited from using the name for his home production, it didn't deter the motives of making the film. The project was still on with Shoojit Sircar as the director. But, John, the producer of the film, was not happy with the way things were shaping up. Reportedly, he decided to put the project on the back-burner.
However, at a later stage, Shoojit opted to produce the film instead of directing it and gave the baton of direction to debutant Amit Roy, who is interestingly also helming RUNNING SHAADI.COM for Shoojit. And HAMARA BAJAJ was eventually rechristened as AGRA KA DAABRA.
Shoojit gave the onus of AGRA KA DAABRA to Amit after watching his work on RUNNING SHAADI.COM. Though Shoojit and Amit have known each other for 20 years now, as they both hail from Delhi, the duo has closely worked on various Ad films together, Amit got on board only after Ayushmann watched his debut film. Ayushmann was all praise for Amit's work in RUNNING SHAADI.COM and he became the director of AGRA KA DAABRA.

“Shoojit was initially very keen to direct AGRA KA DAABRA (earlier titled HAMARA BAJAJ) immediately after VICKY DONOR. But later on, for reasons best known to him, he decided to be the producer. When I went to Shoojit with RUNNING SHAADI.COM, he was mighty happy with the film. During the making of RUNNING SHAADI.COM we had numerous conversations and he gained confidence in me. He kind of recommended my work to Ayushmann and that's how I got AGRA KA DAABRA,” says Amit.
Amit further divulged that AGRA KA DAABRA script is on the final stage. The film will soon go on floors once everyone okays the script.
AGRA KA DAABRA also stars Taapsee Pannu, who would be seen in RUNNING SHAADI.COM.
