According to Mumbai Mirror, the film is a coming-of-age story, which revolves around a 40 year old man and the relationship he has with his daughter. Khan said that Aalia possesses all the qualities they were looking for in a young lead.

Jay Shewakramani, who is also producing the upcoming film via his banner Northern Lights Films along with Khan said that they zeroed in on the lead after screen-testing 50 actresses.
