When asked about the casting of the film, Gabbar Sangrur, in an exclusive interview with team GhaintPunjab said, “When Deepak Thaparr first showed me the script, I told him that I have a friend who is exactly like this character and then showed him his pictures from Instagram and Thaparr also felt that he would be perfect. In case of Monica, we had a few recommendations and she was one of them. Plus, she fulfilled the requirements of an urban girl who is from Delhi. Also when we put both Gurjazz and Monica’s pictures together, they fit the characters— a desi Munda and urban girl.”
Sangrur also hinted at a surprise collaboration between The Theatre Army Films and singer Gurjazz in the future! Also Read: Do You Know About Waris Ahluwalia, The Sikh Actor And Designer Of Hollywood!

While sharing the poster Sangrur captioned the post,
"The Theatre Army Films
(A Lockdown Love Story)
A Family Film"
Looking at the poster we can see that the film will be a ‘Lockdown Love Story’. So it is a romantic film set during one of the loneliest times of the decade i.e. lockdown. Also, an inside scoop is that the film was originally supposed to be an OTT film and not a theatrical release!
