Sonia Saxena (Ameesha Patel), a recently-known fashion designer, who is about to launch her new clothing line "Desi Magic", seems to have the perfect life. But things change when she meets Kunal Grewal (Zayed Khan), who decides to present his best friend Sahil Mehta (Sahil Shroff). All goes well until Sahil also decides to present his girlfriend Mahi Deol, without imagining that both women are look-alikes.
Actress Ameesha Patel will be making her debut as a film producer with this film under her production house, Ameesha Patel Productions. According to her, creating a production house was the idea of her co-producer Kuunal Goomer, who persuaded her to set up a company with him which aimed at making good films.
This is the first time that Patel will be doing a double role for a film. Regarding her character, she told in an interview that in this film, she will be playing two characters of totally opposite nature.
Principal photography began in August 2013 and the film has been shot in Mumbai and Punjab. The film was also shot in Venice, Budapest and Dubai. The film's release has been pushed back several times, due to delay in the shooting schedules.
The filming is reported as completed on 19 January 2019.
