Last week, Priyanka confirmed weeks of rumours by posting a picture with Mindy and informed that she is “proud of this incredible partnership”.

The plot of the film is reportedly based on a “big wedding in India and the ensuing culture clashes”, and to ensure that filming is done accordingly, makers are looking for unique venues in Delhi and Rajasthan to portray the essence of India in the film.

"Since the script revolves around a desi wedding, the makers are looking at unexplored venues in Delhi and Rajasthan as the two places beautifully capture the essence of India. A luxury villa in Ranthambore has also caught their attention. For now, the team is working on the screenplay. Once the script has been locked by August, a production team will fly down to do a recce across North India. Since there are a few similar themed films in production at the moment, including Mira Nair's series A Suitable Boy, the team will have to scout for unique locations in the cities,” a source was quoted as saying by the daily.
