"It is an absolute delight to have Zoya Hussain and Manav Vij on board for this film. Both are commendable actors and have a strong grasp over the core of their characters. Their approach towards prep work says it all," he said in a statement.

For their role in this upcoming film, Zoya learnt horse riding and Manav underwent a complete transformation for his part.

She was seen last in Anurag Kashyap-directed Mukkabaaz, her Bollywood debut, that was produced by Aanand, while Manav is best remembered for his performances in movies such as Udta Punjab, Rangoon, Phillauri and Naam Shabana.
