The film will start rolling from 5th or 7th January in Ghaziabad after which they will shoot some portions at the real locations in Delhi. A foreign schedule is also being planned but the timelines for that haven't been finalized yet due to the uncertain circumstances brought up by COVID-19," said a source close to the development adding that the film will be wrapped up by April 2021 and will release in 2022.

The Luv Films production is said to be a romantic comedy that sees Shraddha playing a waitress while Ranbir essays a charming lover boy. Dimple Kapadia who's currently basking in the love coming her way for her portrayal in Christopher Nolan's Hollywood biggie, Tenet has also joined the cast and will play a pivotal character in the plot. She will join Ranbir and Shraddha in the first schedule after completing her portions for Shah Rukh Khan's YRF actioner, Pathan. 

Ranbir will kick off the shooting for a new film nearly after three years. The young superstar has wrapped up Yash Raj Films' action-adventure Shamshera and is currently finishing the shoot for his long-in-the-making fantasy drama Brahmastra. He is also believed to have agreed to star in Kabir Singh director Sandeep Reddy Vanga's next dark thriller that he will head to right after completing the Luv Ranjan rom-com. We will do a separate story on that project as and when we get the confirmation.
