The official logline of the film reads: Two lives intersect in Mumbai and go along together.

A struggling street photographer, pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger to pose as his fiancee. The pair develops a connection that transforms them in ways that they could not expect.

Batra is best known for directing critically-acclaimed film The Lunchbox which featured Irrfan Khan and Nimrat Kaur in the lead.

The 2019 edition of Sundance Film Festival will be held at Park City, Utah in the US from 24 January to 3 February, 2019. From incisive documentaries to groundbreaking dramas and edgy genre fare, films that launch at Sundance make up many of independent films populating theaters for the rest of the year, and often find their way into the Oscar conversation too.
