Aditi and John Abraham will be seen together for the first time onscreen. Although the latter did a cameo in Aditi's Bejoy Nambiar directed action-thriller Wazir (2016), they were not romantically paired. The actress was also supposed to feature in a folk dance number in John's Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran but that didn't materialize. Many years after several unsuccessful attempts to work together, John and Aditi will finally be coming together and they're believed to be excited for these special parts in the film that also stars Kumud Mishra, Soni Razdan and Kanwaljit Singh in pivotal roles.

Written by Anuja Chauhan and Amitosh Nagpal along with Kaashvie Nair, the film is said to be a coming-of-age, cross-border drama with a heavy dose of emotional quotient. It's said to be a human relationship drama about a grandma and her grandchildren separated by borders. The movie has been scheduled to release in the first quarter of 2021!
