Meanwhile, Neena Gupta is one of the most celebrated actors in the Bollywood film fraternity of all times. She was last seen in 'Badhaai Ho'.
The comedy-drama is directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma and is jointly produced by Vineet Jain, Hemant Bhandari and Aleya Sen under the banner of Junglee Pictures and Chrome Pictures. Through the trailer, one understands that the concept is different and is not something that has been touched upon before.

The film stars Gajraj Rao, Neena Gupta and Sanya Malhotra in pivotal roles and the film crossed a milestone when it garnered a total of Rs 51.35 crore at the domestic market.
Not only did the film cross Rs 100 crore at the box office, but it also won the actress a Filmfare Award for her impeccable performance in the film. Neena rose to popularity while working on TV shows like 'Saans', 'Siski', 'Saat Phere' and 'Kamzor Kadii Kaun'.The actress revealed that it was these small roles on the small screen which gave her money, name and fame.
Neena Gupta has been a part of several films right from 'Badhaai Ho', 'Mulk' and 'Veere Di Wedding'. The actress will also be next seen in 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar'. The film also features Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra in lead roles and is slated to release next year.
