Mumbai Mirror quotes Aditi, who shares that she and John play a couple whose love story remains ‘unfinished and unrequited’ until Arjun’s character decides to bring them closure.
John, who is also the producer of the film, tells the publication that when the director, Kashvie Nair, suggested that he play the role, he couldn’t refuse. He will be playing the role of a sardar during the Partition for the first time in this film.
Nikkhil Advani, who is the co-producer, adds that this is a film about realising what true love is through the story of an old woman who has been yearning for closure in her love story for 70 years.
John and Aditi look amazing together, don’t they? I sure cannot wait to know more about this film!
