What do we know about Jewel Thief?

Jewel Thief is bankrolled by Siddharth Anand’s Marflix Pictures while Robbie Grewal is helming it. It will be a heist focusing on the battle between Saif and Jaideep Ahlawat. According to a report in Pinkvilla, the title has been inspired by Dev Anand’s 1967 movie, but the plot has nothing to do with the original movie.
