Directed by Luv Ranjan, the romantic comedy also stars Anubhav Singh Bassi, Dimple Kapadia and Boney Kapoor in supporting roles. It revolves around a couple planning to break up but being caught in a strange situation as none wants to be the first one to walk out of the relationship. This is Ranbir and Shraddha's first collaboration and their first with Luv Ranjan.
The film got mixed reviews from the critics but seems to be working well at the box office. In a recent interview to PTI, said he is concerned about people warming up to rom-coms after a good dose of action spectacles such as Brahmastra and most recently Pathaan.
He said, “Post pandemic, there has been a certain change in the viewing. Maybe audiences are warming up to action films, big-ticket experiences, special-effects films, this is a rom-com. I want to see if audiences are still giving it a chance. It is important for the film industry for such films to work, because then the genre will still be alive... Otherwise we will be stuck in making action spectacles for cinemas. Sometimes, one just wants to go and watch a nice sweet rom-com and have a great time. For that purpose, I hope this works.”
