"When you get an actor like Amitabh Bachchan, half your battle is won as he’s every director’s delight and I’m extremely excited to direct him. Also, I have been trying to work with Taapsee for a while. This is the perfect story to collaborate with her on. My excitement is doubled now that the film is being produced by SRK. I couldn’t have asked for a better team and now it is time for work," Ghosh told Mumbai Mirror in an interview.

Ghosh, whose repertoire as a filmmaker includes critically acclaimed movies like Kahaani and Kahaani 2, has earlier worked with Bachchan in the 2009 fantasy adventure Aladin. The director had also produced the actor's 2016 thriller Te3n.

As for Khan, he last shared screen space with the senior actor in the 2008 horror comedy Bhoothnath.
