This time Chadha's film titled 'The Viceroy House' will portray British India’s last viceroy, Lord Mountbatten's last few days in India before it got independence. According to reports, the film is a period film set in the 1940s which will also have a romantic angle to it.

The movie will not restrict itself to an Indian star cast as Hollywood actors are being roped in to play important roles which aims to mirror a historic moment in the history of the country.

There were reports that Hollywood actor Colin Firth would be playing the role of Lord Mountbatten, veteran actor Naseeruddin Shah will essay the character of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, while actor Saif Ali Khan will play the role of Jawaharlal Nehru.

Chadha has, however, maintained silence over the casting details.
