The film is expected to go on floors in the end of 2017, after Chopra has done his due research and preparation.

While there is no official confirmation of this yet, Shah Rukh Khan had said in an earlier interview, "He told me that the shooting will be wrapped up in three months, but I will have to work with him on characters for two months prior to shooting for the film. I have no idea what he is making, but he has just asked me to keep my dates free next year. He has been planning one film with me after Befikre."

This film has reportedly been on Chopra's mind for a while now, and it saw a delay only when he decided to direct Befikre instead of producing it.

Meanwhile, Spotboye has confirmed that Shah Rukh Khan will be working with Rohit Shetty on the Hindi remake of Tamil film Theri.
