The 21st century remake of BR Chopra's 1978 film Pati, Patni aur Woh has been making headlines for quite some time now owing to its casting. After Taapsee Pannu voiced her grievances over being unceremoniously dropped from the film, Bhumi Pednekar has now confirmed that she would star alongside Kartik Aaryan and Ananya Panday.

In an Instagram post, Bhumi announced that she had come on board.

Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the film will be financed by T-Series's Bhushan Kumar, BR Chopra's grandsons Juno Chopra and Abhay Chopra.

The film's producers recently issued a joint statement addressing the Taapsee Pannu controversy, saying that they never made any commitment to the actress about finalising her for the role, adding they approached multiple heroines they deemed fit for the part.

Kartik Aaryan will essay Sanjeev Kumar's role in a modern day rendition of Pati, Patni aur Woh.

The film follows Ranjeet Chaddha, a middle aged married man who has an extra-marital affair with his secretary. He makes her believe that his wife is terminally ill and they will soon be able to marry after she passes. In a hilarious turn of events, his lies are eventually exposed after his suspicious wife busts him.
