Reportedly, the project was set to take off in the month of April, but the entire shooting schedule went for a complete toss when the government imposed a nationwide lockdown due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Though the film may take some time before beginning production, Ananya Panday is excited about being part of a Shakun Batra directorial and, also, working with Deepika Padukone. Talking to a publication, the newcomer said that she gave her nod to the film as soon as she heard Shakun will helm it. “I told him that I would do anything he directs. I am just going to sit there like a student and try to absorb as much as I can,” said the actress.

Working with Deepika Padukone had always been on Panday’s bucket-list and now that she is finally going to share the screen space with her, she is super thrilled about the same. “You don’t feel like she is a star overpowering you. It feels like being with a friend. Deepika is more beautiful on the inside than on the outside,” Panday had said earlier.
