The yet-untitled film will be directed by Aakash Kaushik and is touted to be a one-of-its-kind spy comedy. “Karan and Guneet have been very excited about this subject as the script has shaped up well with a perfect blend of espionage elements with comedy. The script tick marks all the boxes of a commercial film as it has scale, thrill, and action with a lot of comedy, and the trio of Karan, Guneet, and Aakash feel that Ayushmann Khurrana fits the character to the T,” revealed a source close to the development.
