According to a source close to the project, the film is being shot with all the Covid-19 safety precautions in place and will star two new actors.

"The film has been in pre-production mode for sometime now. Everything has been planned keeping in mind the ongoing situation, all the safety measures will be in place during the shoot.

"The two fresh faces have been handpicked and groomed by Anubhav and Hansal after months of gruelling sessions," the source said.

The film is jointly produced by Benaras Mediaworks, T-Series along with Mahana Films.
