Malhotra will apparently play Abhay, a thug from Bihar who helps kidnap the grooms. This was previously pointed out the way he announced the film directed by Prashant Singh on his Instagram. Parineeti's character's name is Babli; details of her role are still under wraps. It was previously reported that both actors would undergo voice and diction training to get their accents right for the film.

The film was previously titled Shotgun Shaadi. It will revolve around groom kidnapping, a practice prevalent in Bihar where the grooms are forced to get married on gunpoint to avoid dowry. The actors are sharing the screen four years after Hasee Toh Phasee,which was produced by Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap.
