A source close to the development told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s a female-oriented subject that defies narratives typecasting women. It questions the society and will deliver a poignant message on world domination by women."
Taapsee will be seen portraying the role of a middle-class girl in the film.
Earlier in July, Taapsee shared her happiness over being a part of the "subject way too close to heart". She posted a picture with the filmmaker and wrote, "8th March 2020 will surely be the day to watch out for!"
Cheers to the new beginning with some good food! This one is a subject way too close to my heart. I’ve been wanting to do this since years. It becomes exciting when it happens with the ‘Man of The Moment’ @anubhavsinha
