YRF spokesperson confirmed the cast and said, "Yes, this is correct. The film, Kill Dil, is slated to go on floors this October and will release in 2014."

Shaad received the good news of Yash Raj agreed to produce his film just before his wedding to stylist Aarti Patkar. "This week has been very eventful for Shaad - a wedding and a new film. What more can he ask for?" said a source close to the director.

Shaad Ali is expected to bounce back with ‘Kill Dil’ as he has spent many years to write the script. "He is confident to bounce back with Kill Dil. It's a very good script," added the source.
