Directed by Mridul, the film marks the return of Rajeev Kapoor (Chimpuji) to Hindi films after a gap of 28 years and also features Sanjay Dutt in a cameo. Now the makers have roped in veteran actor Dalip Tahil for a pivotal part in the film.

Dalip Tahil, who is not only known for his stellar performances in films but also theatre, will be seen as the main antagonist in Toolsidas Junior. The actor, who has also sung and acted in a Broadway play titled Bollywood dreams, is essaying an snooker expert in the film. He is set to play the suave adversary to Toolsidas Junior.

Ashutosh said in a statement, "Dalip is an actor who has played multiple characters across Films & TV and Stage, especially Broadway — it was great to see him perform in Andrew Llyod Weber's Bombay Dreams where he sang fabulously! He has done so much good work, and still, I believe he has so much more to give. I am very happy to collaborate with him on Toolsidas Junior!"

Produced by Ashutosh Gowariker and Sunita Gowariker under their home banner Ashutosh Gowariker Productions Pvt. Ltd, Toolsidas Junior is scheduled to release in 2019.
