It is even confirmed by the ace costume designer Manish Malhotra, who mentioned, “I am working on a period film starring Varun and Alia, Sanjay Dutt, Sridevi, Aditya Roy Kapur, so that's a big cast. It will be a period film of a period I feel close to, It is during partition between 1945 to 1947." And if it all went well, Sanjay Dutt and Sridevi will also be cast again after film Gumrah, which was released 25 years ago.
