A source close to the picture also revealed some exciting details about Pooja's character in the movie. "His lady love is a traditional small-town girl who is the polar opposite of Salman’s character. Pooja has played small town roles down South in films like Mukunda, and hence the makers found her apt for the role. There’s a beautiful mature love story between the two characters, and Pooja’s track acts as the catalyst to the plot."
On the present work front, Pooja's last release was the fourth installment of hit franchise 'Housefull' that was received well at the box-office but failed to get good critical acclaim. Salman, on the other hand, is busy with the Prabhdeva directorial 'Radhe' and is also gearing up for the grand finale of his popular controversial TV show 'Bigg Boss 13'.
