Recently, reports were rife that before Kriti, Suniel Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty was the first choice for the film. However, the producer clarified that Athiya was never considered for the role.
Dinesh, who has earlier produced films like Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Love Aaj Kal’, Homi Adajania’s ‘Cocktail’, Sriram Raghavan’s ‘Badlapur’ and more recently Saket Chaudhary’s ‘Hindi Medium’, said, “Kriti has been aware of ‘Arjun Patiala’ since its inception and is the first and only actor who the film is offered to. No other actress was ever approached for ‘Arjun Patiala’.”
‘Arjun Patiala’ is a character-driven comedy and will roll in February 2018. It will be shot in Punjab.
