In a recent interview Shoojit speaks about the casting Vicky, “If you look at Vicky’s track record, he is taking brave steps and making some really fabulous choices. I wanted an actor who is ready to give his heart and soul to the film. Plus, he is a Punjabi boy and my film is a story of a Punjabi man. So, in many ways, he turned to be the obvious choice.” Sources say the New Release will hit the big screen in 2020.
