"Finally, I have been cast in a film in my mother tongue Gujarati. I hope I will live up to it," Shroff said in a statement. 

"Ventilator" was produced by actor Priyanka Chopra. The movie revolves around an ailing senior member of a family who is being put on the ventilator just days before the popular Ganpati festival leading to varied degrees of speculation and panic amongst the clan he belongs to.

Rajesh Mapuskar, director of the original "Ventilator" has joined hands with makers for creative direction and guidance. 

"It will be exciting to see 'Ventilator' set in another culture. My biggest excitement is Jaggu dada playing Ashutosh Gowariker's character. I'm happy to have him on board," Rajesh 

said. 

"Under our banner Irada Entertainment we are extremely excited and proud to make 'Ventilator' in Gujarati. We are adapting the film as per the nuances of Gujarati culture and really looking forward to Gujarati Bhidu Jackie Shroff," producer of the film, Falguni Patel, said.
