Roshan informs a daily, "SRK is just producing the film. My film stars four fresh new faces, one among them is Zoa (daughter of Karim Morani) who is making her debut with this film. We are still finalising some of the cast members and as of now have some known names too like Archana Puran Singh, Satish Shah etc. playing vital roles."
Talking about what the film will be based on, he said, “The film is an adaptation of a play I had written and directed way back in 1999 called `Graffiti` about life at high school. That play was set in '99 and this film is set in 2009 so it's but obvious that I would be having some elements which the youth of today connect with one of them being social networking sites such as Facebook. However, beyond that there is no real connection. The film is set in a high school and will try to capture the various emotions such as love, jealousy, pride that one goes through during school days. I believe some of the best days of our life are the ones that we spend in high school and it is this period of one`s life that the film will portray."
SRK's last production venture was Billu, which starred Irrfan Khan and Lara Dutta.
