Pati Patni Aur Woh is a modern day retelling of BR Chopra's 1978 iconic comedy of the same name. In an interview to Firstpost, director Mudassar Aziz reveals that his film has little in common with the original, except for the title and basic premise, he says, “I realise that in 2019 you can’t make a film where a man slips, makes a mistake, goes back home and says sorry to one, then goes to the office says sorry to the other and it is all okay. I had to concoct a story where my women needed to win. That was the first change I made. Then I am glad that my producer to whom the original negative belongs realised that this is the way to go. So we constructed it around that,” he adds.
The film is bankrolled by T-Series's Bhushan Kumar, and BR Chopra's grandsons Juno Chopra and Abhay Chopra.
