A Mumbai Mirror report states that the actor will be seen in the film opposite Rajkummar Rao, whose latest film Stree has managed to cross the Rs 100 crore mark.

The same report states that Parineeti had agreed to be a part of the project immediately after reading the script, since she enjoyed Basu's films and his vision to create extraordinarily different films. Basu has begun the work on pre-production and is keen to bring the film on floors at the soonest.

While the original film featured an ensemble cast comprising Irrfan Khan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kangana Ranaut, Kay Kay Menon, Shilpa Shetty, Shiney Ahuja, Dharmendra, Nafisa Ali and Sharman Joshi, the sequel will also enatil an ensemble cast, with names like Abhishek Bachchan, Ileana D’Cruz, Arjun Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan doing the rounds.

However, there have been no confirmations on the names yet. Basu even posted on Twitter about the issues one faces while trying to make a film with an ensemble cast.

Life in a... Metro chronicled the life and struggled of  nine individuals, set against the backdrop of Mumbai.
