"This film has a really heart-touching story. It is based on a true story and I feel the audience get connected quickly with real-life stories. Other than that, I always wanted to work with the film's director Shonali Bose after watching her last film 'Margarita With A Straw'. There is Priyanka (Chopra) in this film, who is also producing the film, and I was hoping that one day I will do a film produced by Priyanka's production company," Farhan said.
