On the tenth anniversary of Raanjhanaa, which fell on June 21, Aanand L. Rai announced his next collaboration with Dhanush, titled Tere Ishk Mein.

While the movie's announcement has generated excitement among moviegoers, the makers have refrained from revealing any further details about it. Now, we have some updates to share.

Pinkvilla has exclusively learnt that Aanand L. Rai and Dhanush will commence shooting for Tere Ishk Mein in November 2023. "Aanand and his team of writers (Himanshu Sharma and Neeraj Yadav) have nearly completed the writing, and they will initiate pre-production in October. They have finalized the shooting timeline and plan to film extensively in Uttar Pradesh around November. The movie is a tragic love story, and while Dhanush will portray the character of an angry young man named Shekhar, the female lead opposite him is yet to be finalized. The makers are in discussions with several actresses, but are yet to finalize the name," a source close to the development informed us. The source added that the film will be shot in a straight three-month schedule, with the intention of releasing it around the middle of 2024.
