Interestingly, King Khan had dropped a few hints about the film during the promotions for Fan.

"Aditya Chopra has a plan to do a film with me. I think I will start shooting from Aditya's next film by end of 2017. All he has told me is the fact that is a very big project and I might have to sit for two months with Adi to prepare for the character. He told me that the shooting will be wrapped up in three months, but I will have to work with him on characters for two months prior to shooting for the film," he had said.
