"We will start the film in the third week of March 2019, and the cast is still coming together. Vikrant is somebody who I wanted to work with since Raazi.

"And after I saw him in A Death In The Gunj...you know there are some actors that you just want to work with —and I'm just glad I got the opportunity to have a suitable character for him in this film, which is Deepika's partner," Meghna said in a statement.

Talking about his character, she said: "He's a north Indian man who used to be a professional but decides to leave it all and become an actor. And then starts this campaign against acid attack violence.

"I'm glad Vikrant is a part of the film and I think I can speak for both Deepika and me that we're really excited that he's playing this part."

Vikrant has also featured in movies like Lootera and Dil Dhadakne Do.
