The film will also have a strong villainous character, one which will be remembered for their evil humor.

Over selecting Siddharth Malhotra for the movie, Balaji Motion Pictures CEO Tanuj Garg said, "We have confirmed Siddharth Malhotra for our film with Mohit Suri. Siddharth has become a hugely popular commodity with the youth after Student of the Year and has the appeal, looks and intensity to carry a commercial action-romantic thriller on his shoulders. He is tomorrow?s angry young man, and believes that he is the right choice for this film."

This is the first time Ekta and Mohit Suri will be coming together. The story will have many elements, however action will be precedent. It will be Siddharth?s first out and out masala film and will portray him in the young angry mode.

Mohit Suri has worked with the Bhatt?s previously and made blockbuster hits under their banner. However, this film will be marked as his break out film.
