Pati Patni Aur Woh is a modern day retelling of BR Chopra's 1978 iconic comedy of the same name. The film follows the escapades of Aaryan as Chintu Tyagi, a government employee in Kanpur, who falls in love with Tapasya (Ananya Panday) despite being married to Vedika (Bhumi Pednekar). The film also features a remix version of Govinda's 'Akhiyon Se Goli Maare' (from 1998 comedy Dulhe Raja).
Speaking about her role, Panday recently told Firstpost, "If I'm playing 'woh,' it doesn't mean I endorse extramarital affairs. It's just a character. These days, the 'woh' in a relationship can be anything from the mobile phone to work life, anything that creates a rift between the married couple."
Directed by Mudassar Aziz, the film will be bankrolled by T-Series's Bhushan Kumar, and Chopra's grandsons Juno Chopra and Abhay Chopra.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Akshay Kumar's Raksha Bandhan also features Bhumi Pednekar. The two actors have reunited after the success of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. It is to be noted that the film will be clashing with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor’s Laal Singh Chaddha.
After the grand success of Kartik Aaryan's Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, the makers are planning to come up with the third part of the horror-comedy franchise.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 crossed 175 crores at box office and Kartik Aaryan celebrated the success with children from an NGO at a special screening.
