Chanda Mama Door Ke also stars Shraddha Kapoor. The film is inspired by the 1968 Hollywood movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. Chanda Mama Door Ke will trace the journey of India's space programme and culminate with India's first astronaut landing on the moon.

In an interview with news agency IANS, Sushant Singh Rajput said that Chanda Mama Door Ke is a 'challenging' film for him.

"It is quite a challenging film because it will be India's first space film, and knowing that we all loved seeing Gravity and Interstellar we don't have so many dollars to make the film. So, it is extremely challenging for us to make this film and give you the same experience without having that much of funding. We are doing our best," IANS quoted Sushant as saying.

Chanda Mama Door Ke is scheduled for release on January 26, 2018.
