The film starring Alia Bhatt and Arjun Kapoor is a big screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's bestseller "2 States: The Story of My Marriage".
" '2 States' is an intense story and it's a sought of negative role. I am playing Arjun's father's role. It's like a guest appearance and the character speaks a lot in it," he added.
In the film, a Punjabi boy falls in love with a Tamil girl, which leads to a regional and cultural clash.
The ace actor, who is ruling the small screen, wants to do films with knowledgeable people.
"I don't feel I have so much of knowledge that I can carry a film on my shoulders," said Ronit, who had impressed with his performance as a strict father in Vikramaditya Motwane's "Udaan".
