“Irrfan hasn’t done a film like this before and I am hopeful people will enjoy him in this space (comedy). From a comedy point of view this is going to be Irrfan’s best film in the space. It’s an urban film. The script has turned out to be really good,” Abhinay told PTI.

Last year, producer Rakesh Roshan had announced an untitled film to be directed by “Delhi Belly” fame director starring Irrfan Khan. Later, Roshan said the project has been dropped and that led to speculation that the film has been shelved.

There was also a buzz that Aditi Rao Hydari will be part of this film. But according to Abhinay, the makers are in talks with an actress and he is not in a position to give out names. “The film is at advanced stage. We we will go on floors early next year,” he said.
