We will be shooting at a family house in Patiala, which is perfect setting for the film. I am shooting entirely at real locations as I want the film to develop as organically as possible. We can't wait to start rolling now."
The father-son duo who will sharing screen space for the first time is reportedly nervous. Adding further about Anil Kapoor, the debutante director said, "But Anil is also really looking forward to the outing. While I have all his costumes in place, he insisted on bringing his own stuff too."
Producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra would be soon joining the sets, talking about which Shelly Chopra Dhar said, "Vinod is busy with his next directorial at the moment but I talk to him all the time. He is on top of everything and knows what is happening here."
The film will also star TV actress Madhu Malti as Anil Kapoor's mother and Rajkummar Rao as Sonam Kapoor's love interest. However since the actor is currently busy shooting for Dinesh Vijan's horror comedy along with Shraddha Kapoor he will be joining the shoot from 29th January.
Juhi Chawla who was seen alongside Anil Kapoor in many films like DEEWANA MASTANA, ANDAAZ amongst others will also be joining the unit in February.
