"I did speak to Varun about the film. He is more than happy about it (film). But only time will tell if he can do the film or not as he has a very busy schedule so I don't know what the future holds."

Besides this, Nitesh is excited about his director wife Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's upcoming directorial, "Bareilly Ki Barfi". He has co-written the romantic comedy with Shreyas Jain.
