The film would be a comedy based on an orphan, who decides to adopt parents. Talking about the film Dinesh Vijan said, "This innovative idea also came from real life though it is not inspired by any incident in particular. We have spun it into a crazy comedy with our unique tadka," in an interview with Mumbai Mirror. Referring to another project that he wanted to work on with Kriti and Rajkummar, he said, "That project wasn't working out, so, one day, over a cup of coffee, I sketched out this idea to them and they jumped at it. Raj and Kriti came on board even before the script was written."
Director Abhishek Jain will make his debut as a director in Bollywood with this film, which is yet to be titled. Talking about him in the same interview, Dinesh Vijan said, "It's always been our policy to back new directors, be it Amar Kaushik who gave us Stree and Bala, Laxman Utekar who came good with Luka Chuppi and is currently directing Mimi, and Hardik Mehta who will keep you engaged in Roohi Afza. With Abhishek at the helm, we are looking forward to a roller-coaster ride that children and parents can watch together."
