was to star Sridevi as the protagonist but after her tragic end, Madhuri Dixit was roped in for the role. This is how Sridevi's daughters Janhvi and Khushi had to say: "Abhishek Varman's next film was very close to mom's heart... Dad, Khushi and I are thankful to Madhuri ji for now being a part of this beautiful film," Janhvi had Instagrammed.
