Released in 2010, director Kiran Rao's amazing ability was showcased in Dhobi Ghat, and audiences have been longing for her return ever since. Whether by choice or necessity, she appears to be resolute in her choice of a decent script. Rao, on the other hand, appears to have chosen one. After a long time, the audience will soon be treated to another directorial marvel from Kiran Rao. 

Aamir Khan Productions is now working on a comedy-drama, which began filming on January 8 at several locations around Maharashtra. A leading daily quoted a saying that Kiran's next is a masala entertainer that will be backed by Aamir and it's about three characters, written by Biplab Goswami with a script by Sneha Desai. 

Rao has confirmed the lead to Sparsh Shrivastav of Jamtara: Sabka Number Ayega, who has appeared in various series, including Balika Vadhu. Pratibha Ranta, who appeared in Zee TV's Qurbaan Hua, and Nitanshi Goel, who appeared in Peshwa Bajirao and Karmaphal Daata Shani, were the two other leads Rao pursued.

Because of the film's subject, it will be shot in various towns around Maharashtra. The first schedule, which will be conducted in accordance with COVID-19 criteria, will run until January 20, the sources continue. 

Following that, the unit will take a COVID-mandated break before returning to the next location after a few weeks. By April, Kiran hopes to have wrapped the shoot. 

After Delhi Belly, composer Ram Sampath and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya will return to the banner with this film. It will be amazing to witness the talented Kiran Rao make a comeback with her new project.

Meanwhile, Delhi Belly featured Aamir, Monica Dogra, Kriti Malhotra, and Prateik Babbar in the lead roles. Interestingly, Aamir and Kiran, who announced their divorce in 2020, will be professionally collaborating after Laal Singh Chaddha.
