“The character is of a small town boy and the makers wanted to take an actor who can pull off the character with ease. The makers wanted a relatively fresh face and after doing the rounds of auditions, Jitendra fitted all the bills. Although he has not signed on the dotted line yet, he is the one.”
The film will release on Valentine’s Day 2020. It will clash with two films – Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan’s yet-untitled next film with Imtiaz Ali and Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani starrer Malang.
