While the film will be produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, it will be directed by Taranveer Singh who will be making his directorial debut. Singh has previously worked as an assistant director on Karthik Calling Karthik (2010), Jhootha Hi Sahi (2010) and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (2013).

Veteran actress Poonam Dhillon hailed the film as one of the best debuts that her son Anmol could ask for, while affirming that she did not use her connection to secure the role.

“I think it’s one of the best debut that he could have asked for. He is very happy and chilled about. I would say that he got this on his merit as I had no say or connection in it. Our whole focus is on his Bollywood debut right now and we both are very excited about it,” Dhillon said.

The shooting for Tuesdays And Fridays began last week in London and will conclude with a shooting schedule in Mumbai in September.
