Riddhi, who entered the Bengali film industry with Open Tee Bioscope, is the son of  acclaimed theatre actors Kaushik and Reshmi Sen. The team of Ela has already started the shoots and Riddhi also informed Kajol arranged a cake to celebrate his National Award win. Kajol reportedly was all praise for Risshi and said he doesn't need any acting tips and has a great future ahead. Pradeep Sarkar finalised on Riddhi during an ad shoot in 2016. The young actor even said that the director did not even audition him for the role and discussed the script straight away.

Sarkar sounded quite excited about the venture and had earlier said, "It is a light-hearted mother-son story and we are scheduled to shoot Kajol’s introduction sequence where she is ready to go someplace. It has some really strong characters and there’s a good chance of people getting really close to them after watching the film. I have been wanting to work with Kajol for a long time and it’s fantastic we are finally getting together."
