The actress had said that the sudden change had jeopardised her work schedule completely as she had specifically slotted dates for the film by taking away time from her other projects. The producers' statement explained how they had approached several actresses who they deemed fit for the role.

The statement mentioned that the process of casting was purely based on who fit the role perfectly. "For our upcoming project – Pati Patni Aur Woh, we reached out to many actors, who we thought could be our potential protagonists in the film. The versatile actress Taapsee Pannu was one of the many actresses we had approached for one of the leading ladies in the film," the statement read. Kumar and Chopra stated how they considered Taapsee a talented and versatile actress, and would love to work with her in the future. The final casting of the Pati Patni Aur Woh remake will be announced soon.

As reported earlier, Kartik Aaryan is set to essay Sanjeev Kumar's role in a modern day take of the 1978 film. The original film follows Ranjeet Chaddha, a middle aged married man who has an extramarital affair with his secretary Nirmala Deshpande (played by Ranjeeta Kaur). He makes her believe that his wife is terminally ill and they will soon be able to marry after she passes. In a hilarious turn of events, his lies are eventually exposed after his suspicious wife, played by Vidya Sinha, busts him.
