Both Vandana and the script, are unique and have something important to say. What drew me to this script was, that it touches upon themes, very few films have had the courage to address. And after doing a version of Macbeth in ‘Veeram’, it also gave me a chance to dive into another Shakespeare classic, Merchant of Venice,” Kapoor said in a statement.The film will be completely shot in idyllic Mussorie and will also feature actors Ali Haji, Mohammad Ali Mir, Muskaan Jaferi and Shaan Groverr. The film is produced by Yoodlee Films.
