Tiwari is currently writing and developing the script with Fox Star Studios' creative team. "My quest for telling stories of life from the heart found a partner in like-minded Rucha and her team from Fox Star Studios. I am totally thrilled to direct another story which will be close to my heart," Tiwari said in a statement.
Rucha Pathak, Chief Creative Officer, Fox Star Studios, said her team has been making a big push in creative and development at the studio, and in "the process of researching and developing a concept on kabaddi, we came across an idea that we knew was just right for Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari".
"She has a very unique voice in telling really good stories as we've seen in Nil Battey Sannata and Bareilly Ki Barfi," said Rucha.
