- The actor's performance in Shershaah was praised and he is being touted to have found his ground.
- This upcoming action thriller will be a test of time for Malhotra.

Not much is revealed about the film. The film will be bankrolled by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. Apart from Malhotra and Disha Patani, this film also stars Raashii Khanna in a pivotal role. Khanna's last Hindi film was Shoojit Sircar's Madras Cafe (2013). The announcement video shared by Malhotra made it seem like an aerial-action film as he was seen inside an aircraft.
