The poster shows Nawazuddin, poised with a camera, standing in front of the Gateway of India, in Mumbai, while Sanya can be seen in a green top carrying a blue bag on her shoulders.

‘Photograph’ is based on a struggling street photographer in Mumbai (played by Nawaz) pressured to marry by his grandmother, convinces a shy stranger (Sanya’s character) to pose as his fiancée. The pair develops a connection that transforms them in ways they could not expect.

The film’s backdrop is set in Dharavi, Mumbai and will feature Sanya essaying the character of ‘an introverted college girl who tops in her studies’.
