Ekta Kapoor, who is one of the producers of the film, says "Guneet is one of the most relevant voices in Indian cinema today. When I heard the very concept of the film, I knew we had to do this together."

Guneet Monga says, "We are glad to bring a concept as quirky as Pagglait on screen with Sanya Malhotra leading the film and a powerhouse like Balaji Telefilms backing this one. Our film is a story of a young girl as she discovers her purpose and identity amidst looming questions about love and belonging in the neo modern small-town India."

Malhotra was last seen Ritesh Batra's Photograph alongside Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival 2019.

Meanwhile, Malhotra will be seen next in Shakuntala Devi alongside Vidya Balan and Jisshu Sengupta. She will essay the role of Shakuntala Devi's daughter, Anupama Banerji, in the upcoming biopic. Earlier last month, she also shared her first look from the biopic.

Malhotra is also prepping for a Anurag Basu's untitled next. The film is billed as a dark comedy anthology, and and has four different stories set in a quintessential Indian metro.  Malhotra is paired opposite Aditya Roy Kapur in the movie. Starring an ensemble all-star cast such as Abhishek Bachchan, Rajkummar Rao, Fatima Sana Shaikh,and Pankaj Tripathi, the film is set to release on 13 March 2020.

Pagglait will hit the screens in the year 2020.
