I am looking forward to working with Farhan and Priyanka.” Farhan calls it a “beautiful story”. “I am looking forward to working with Priyanka again and collaborating with Ronnie and Sid,” he added.

The film is based on Aisha Choudhary, a young motivational speaker who was diagnosed with immune deficiency disorder as an infant. She died at the age of 19. Zaira will play Aisha and Farhan, Priyanka will be seen as her parents.
