While a few scenes have already been shot at a month long schedule in North India, Ashwiny who recently travelled to Punjab for the film’s recee ,plans to reshoot all the earlier portions.

She says , “I am treating this film as a new project. The recce is to understand the milieu in which the film is based, the lifestyle of the characters, how they talk, where they live, among other things. I do my own research and make notes before going on floors.I loved the script, Kanika (Dhillon) has written a beautiful story. I won’t be making any changes there but I will add my own perspective as a filmmaker”.

After a heart-warming mother-daughter social drama, Ashwiny is kicked about exploring the romcom genre for the first time and has already started initial workshops with leads Ayushmann Khurrana and Bhumi Pednekar .
