Johar told The Times of India: "I can't divulge too much now. But what I can definitely say is that the movie is mainstream and has a very strong underlying social message. It's solid and hard-hitting.

"Punit brought me this amazing script. I immediately approached Akshay and he was equally thrilled with the idea."

"If Dharma Productions has to collaborate with Akshay, then it has to be the right kind of film. And, as I said earlier, this one, apart from being commercial, has a strong voice."

Kumar added: "We're two very passionate producers with one great aim - to entertain. Both Karan and I want to make our fathers proud. Cheers to our new venture."

It was reported in December that Kumar had crossed over the 400 crores mark at the box office in 2012.
