Reportedly, Deepika will be spending time with Romi to prepare for the character. The actress was quoted as saying to Bombay Times, “There isn’t a lot of material available on her. I have met her a few times, including our wedding reception, and I have interacted with her socially over the years. I am also referring to whatever material the director’s team has sent across to me. My parents have known their family for many years. So I feel I know her and hope that she is proud and happy with the film. I intend to connect and spend some time with her before I start filming to be able to understand her perspective better.”

The film which also stars Saqib Saleem, Adinath Kothare, Chirag Patil, Harrdy Sandhu, Ammy Virk, Jatin Sarna, Pankaj Tripathi, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Dinker Sharma, Jiiva, Sahil Khattar, Dhairya Karwa, Nishant Dahhiya and R Badree is slated to release on April 10, 2020.

Meanwhile, Deepika will also be seen in Meghna Gulzar’s Chhapaak which is slated for January 10, 2020.
