Confirming the news, Ramesh Taurani, who will be producing the movie, told Mumbai Mirror, "Yes, Diljit and Yami have given their nod to the film. It’s a fresh pairing and we are excited because both are competent actors with impeccable comic timing. It is a sensible comedy and revolves around a couple."

Taurani also stated that they are scouting for a new face who will play a crucial role in the film. The report added that the project is supposed to go on floors in August, after the entire casting is locked.

The film is based on one of the last scripts penned by actor-director Neeraj Vora, who passed away in 2017. Vora was the screenwriter for films like Hera Pheri and Bhool Bhulaiyaa.

Meanwhile, Diljit will be next seen in Dinesh Vijan’s quirky cop comedy Arjun Patiala alongside Kriti Sanon and Varun Sharma. He will also be seen sharing screen space with Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor Khan and Kiara Advani in first-timer Raj Mehta's Good News.

Yami, who was last seen in box-office hit Uri: The Surgical Strikeis prepping for Amar Kaushik's Bala alongside  Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar.
