Amit Ravindranath Sharma is one of the leading ad filmmakers in the country and his company Chrome Pictures has made some of the most memorable TVCs for brands like Google, Micromax, Mc Donalds, among others. But, the director did not have  a very smooth start in the movies. His debut film ‘Tevar’ (2014), an official remake of the Telugu hit ‘Okkadu’ could not make much of an impact at the box-office.

After making a commercial potboiler, the director is now back with a slice-of-life comedy which deals with a rather unusual topic. The film, top-lined by Ayushmann Khurrana and Sanya Malhotra, has Neena Gupta playing the role of a woman who gets pregnant at a time when one off her sons (Ayushmann) himself is on the verge of getting married.

Talking about Neena’s reaction when she heard the script, Amit says, “There was no shock or apprehension when she heard the narration. She loved the concept and understood our intention behind making the film. It could have been a little awkward for an actor of her age and stature to play a role like this but she had no inhibitions and was very comfortable moving around with the baby bump throughout the shoot.”
