The film is a comic take on the concept of 'groom kidnapping' prevalent in Bihar, popularly known as "pakadua vivah".On the basic premise of the film, Sidharth had recently said: "It is a romantic comedy film based in Patna (Bihar). It revolves around the concept of Pakadwa Vivah. We have been shooting for this film since last year. We created a lot of things of Patna in Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh)."
When Parineeti was asked if she faced any difficulty in learning the dialect for the film, she had said during a media interaction: "I think the good thing was that our director knows that world really well and in his Hindi also, there is a little bit flavour of Patna. So, it was really easy for me and Sidharth (Malhotra) because we used to follow Prashant blindly."
The film is being helmed by debutant director Prashant Singh. Also starring Jaaved Jaaferi, the movie is a Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media & Entertainment production.
