Kajol is believed to have signed up for playing Shah Rukh’s wife in the film. Taapsee Pannu has been offered the role of a reporter who will cover his story across borders. Meanwhile, Vidya Balan has been approached to play a character, who will help Shah Rukh on his journey. Manoj Bajpayee and Boman Irani are expected to play key roles in the film.
The Free Press Journal quoted a source close to Rajkumar Hirani, “Hirani’s next is a social comedy about immigration and the journey of a man and his family across two countries, Punjab and Canada, with a strong emotional cord running through it, just like all his other movies. All four principal actors have performance-oriented roles. There are three actresses in the movie – one plays Shah Rukh’s wife, and two more strong, layered, pivotal characters. While Kajol will play his spouse, apparently Taapsee Pannu has been approached to play a reporter, who covers his story across borders. Vidya Balan is also in talks for the third female character, someone who helps Shah Rukh in his journey.” The source further added that things are still in the nascent stage and a “formal announcement will be made only after everything falls in place.”
According to reports, the music of the film will be composed by Shantanu Moitra and lyrics will be given by Swanand Kirkire. Produced by Rajkumar Hirani and Shah Rukh Khan’s production house, Red Chilli Entertainment, the film’s shooting might begin in April, 2022.
