Abhishek who has already read the script is pretty kicked about commencing work on the film.

The actor has mostly been seen in comedies recently with the Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone starrer Happy New Year, which released in 2014 being his comeback vehicle after an absence of a few years.

Nishikant on the other hand has a resume full of action flicks and thrillers including the 2015’s sleeper hit Drishyam starring Ajay Devgn and John Abraham starrer Force.

So we may get to see Pooja, who played a princess in her Bollywood debut, step into the modern world with a bang!
