The film is bankrolled by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s production house Excel Entertainment in collaboration with Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey’s MacGuffin Pictures. The film marks as Rishi Kapoor’s first project post his return from the USA.

On Thursday, film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his official Twitter handle to share the official announcement. He posted a picture of Rishi Kapoor along with others and wrote, “IT’S OFFICIAL… #RishiKapoor returns to films with #SharmajiNamkeen… Costars #JuhiChawla… Directed by Hitesh Bhatia… Produced by Excel Entertainment [Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar] in collaboration with MacGuffin Pictures [Honey Trehan and Abhishek Chaubey] (sic).”
