When asked about whether he has signed or offered the film to Ranbir, Menon revealed, "Ranbir is a fantastic actor. I would love to work with him. He makes some interesting choices. I haven't offered him the film yet. He's busy with Brahmastra right now. We had planned to meet, not for a film or anything, but just to catch up and know each other. We don't know each other at all. We just wanted to meet and discuss what space he would like to be in. But right now, if you ask me, there's nothing which has been discussed with him."
