A source close to the development reveals to us, “Mrunal and Siddhant will start shooting for the first schedule of the film in Mumbai next week. The actors have been taking workshops with director Ravi Udyawar since the first week of April as a part of their prep.

The yet-untitled film is touted to be a musical. It’s a romance drama set in a contemporary world and will be backed by some soulful compositions.

The source shares, “Bhansali aims to finish the shoot of this film first before he jumps on to his next directorial, Love and War, which has actors Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in the lead.”

The fresh on-screen pairing of Thakur,31, and Chaturvedi, 30, has excited their fans, especially with Thakur’s last romantic releases Sita Ramam (2022) and Hi Nanna (2023) working well at the box office. In an earlier interview, The Gehraiyaan (2022) actor had praised his co-star’s work in Super 30 (2019) and Sita Ramam. Thakur, too, said in an interview how Chaturvedi and her had a call for over 45 minutes discussing cinema and her co-star praising her performances recently.
