Meanwhile, Vivek Krishnani, Managing Director of Sony Pictures Entertainment India, said that they are excited to collaborate with Rishi Kapoor after the success of 102 Not Out.
“As we continue to ramp up our local production slate with a keen focus on stories that audiences have never seen before, we are extremely thrilled to get started on this family comedy. The moment our partners Abhishek Chaubey and Honey Trehan brought the story to us – we were sold on the idea,” Krishnani said.
According to the press release, the untitled film will be co-produced by Sony Pictures International Productions in India and MacGuffin Pictures.
