The film will be produced by Ajay's banner Devgan Entertainment Limited. This will be Devgan and Bips' fifth film together (see box). Bipasha was also the heroine for Rohit's debut film Zameen which starred Ajay Devgan and Abhishek Bachchan.
Bipasha admits, "Yes. I am doing Rohit's film. I am very excited about the script and am looking forward to working with Ajay again. We have worked together in serious films. It will be interesting to do a comedy with him. When Rohit came to me with the script, I instantly said yes. It's reminded me of No Entry."
The film also stars Sanjay Dutt, Fardeen Khan and one more heroine, who is yet to be signed on. The film is based on the Hindi play Uncle Samjha Karo which was staged five years ago in Mumbai and deals with mistaken identities and hilarious goof-ups.
Paritosh Painter and Balwinder Singh Suri who penned and directed the play are on board with Devgan's team of writers, which include Robin Bhatt, Yunus Sajawat and Farhad Sajid for the film's story-screenplay. he film is slated to roll in March and will be shot mostly in Goa a location that Rohit considers lucky as he filmed his Golmaal films there.
