“A story that touches your heart so deeply and so instantly, it”s the quickest I’ve signed a film in my career. Dedicating this film, Rakshabandhan to my sister, Alka, and to the most special bond in the world. That of a brother and sister. Thank you @aanandlrai, this one is very special,” he added.

The film is written by Aanand’s longtime collaborator, National Award-winning screenwriter Himanshu Sharma, who has penned “Zero”, “Raanjhanaa” and the “Tanu Weds Manu” franchise.
