“My endeavour is to create something that can dent the prevalent pop culture that surrounds us, with a sense of sharp wit and irony, in a racy comedy of errors,” he said in a statement.
Siddharth Anand Kumar, VP Films and TV and Producer at Yoodlee Films, added the film is a heartland caper comedy that delivers a relevant message.
“This is another firm confident stride in the search of Yoodlee Films for engaging, entertaining and relevant content for a discerning audience”, Kumar said.
With production underway, the film will be shot across Mumbai over the next few months.
