Dinesh Vijan, who is producing the film, shared his thoughts about casting Janhvi Kapoor for the female lead. He wanted someone with unabashed conviction, who could jump straight into the role, as he revealed in a statement.
We needed someone who could portray two contrasting personalities with ease and Janhvi stood out. She really connected with the script. Her talent is still raw, but she is excited about being moulded. The script is young, refreshing and totally crazy, and she is exactly that.
Janhvi Kapoor, too, shared the excitement as she posted the official announcement on her Instagram handle. Check it out-
The film’s producer Mrighdeep Lamba, who is also the co-writer for the film, shared the fact that it took some time for them to finalize the female lead; but once they had Janhvi there was no looking back .
We took some time to finalize the female lead. Besides being pretty, she needed to oscillate between two characters which are poles apart. You will fall in love with her in one scene and won’t believe she is the same girl in the next one. It is not an easy switch for an actor. It is the perfect casting.
The film is being directed by Hardik Mehta and is slated to release on March 20, 2020. This will be Janhvi’s first comedy film. The actress will also be working on the Gunjan Saxena biopic, and will be seen in Karan Johar’s Takht.
