Johar also revealed in his tweets that the film has its roots in the Mughal empire and revolve around "an epic battle for the Majestic Mughal throne". Like most Dharma Productions, the film is touted to be a dramatic story about family, love, succession and how ambition and greed change the dynamics of relationships.

Johar acknowledged the writing team on Twitter and described them as the "heartbeat and soul of him film". Johar is directing the project and also co-producing it with Apoorva Mehta. He had last directed a short film for Netflix's anthology, Lust Stories.
The film will release in 2020.
