A few weeks ago, Maddock Films had announced a film starring Kriti Sanon, Rajkummar Rao, Dimple Kapadia and Paresh Rawal. The movie will be directed by Abhishek Jain who has earlier helmed a couple of Gujarati films.

The movie is about a young couple who adopts an elder couple as parents to complete their family. Well, of course, it’s an interesting concept and now, the makers have finally decided the title of the movie. While talking to Mid-day, Jain revealed that the title of the film is Second Innings. The filmmaker said, “The title fits our story seamlessly.”

The film was supposed to start rolling in March this year, but due to coronavirus outbreak and the lockdown, the schedule has been posted. Jain said, “We were supposed to begin shooting in Delhi in March, but now everything has been pushed due to the pandemic.”

Kriti Sanon and Rajkummar Rao have earlier worked together in films like Bareilly Ki Barfi, Raabta (Rao had a cameo in it) and Stree (Kriti featured in a song in it). It will surely be interesting to see them on the big screen again.

Talking about their other films, Kriti has movies like Mimi and Bachchan Pandey in her kitty. A few days ago, there were reports that the former might get a digital release, but the makers are yet to announce it officially. Bachchan Pandey is slated to release on 22nd January 2021.

Meanwhile, Rajkummar Rao will next be seen on the big screen in Chhalaang. The movie, which is directed by Hansal Mehta, is slated to release on 12th June 2020, but it looks like, the film will get postponed. He also has Badhaai Do in his kitty, a sequel to 2018 release Badhaai Ho. The actor will also be seen in Netflix’s original The White Tiger alongside Priyanka Chopra.
