Talking about the project, the actress earlier spoke to Times of India, saying she would spend some time with Bhatia before shooting commences in order to enhance her perspective on the part. She further revealed that since her parents had known Kapil and Romi for quite some time, Deepika had often interacted with Romi, including at her own wedding reception.
Sharing screen space with her real-life husband was something the Cocktail actress was looking forward to.
