The film is going to project Dutt's life, highlighting his lows and highs - both in the personal and professional front. Hirani will reportedly play the role of film director Subhash Ghai, who is known for making guest appearances in most of his films. Ghai has directed dutt in films like Vidhaata and Khalnayak. Hirani's character will apparently approach Dutt to make a biopic on his life, jokingly.

Although there is no official confirmation about Hirani's acting stint, Ranbir Kapoor, however, did drop a few hints in his podcast with comedy group All India Bakchod. While they were discussing the film, the group mentioned the possibility of Hirani pulling off a Ghai and making an appearance in his own films. Kapoor replied, "There is something like that," giving everyone enough reasons to come up with their own theories.

The film will hit the screens on 30 March, 2018. The film was slated for a Christmas 2017 release, however, the makers did not want the film to clash with Salman Khan starrer Tiger Zinda Hai.
