Rumour mills were abuzz that Nimrat and Rajkummar Rao have been signed for the film.
Talking about it, Nimrat told IANS: "That project is actually still in talks. I haven't signed anything, nor has Rajkummar. Both of us have liked the project."
She is still waiting to discuss the project with Shukla, a veteran actor-director.
"I really love the script. Saurabh is fantastic as an actor and I would love to see how it would work with him as a director. He has got great sensibilities. The script is amazing, so I would really love to do the film. But like I said, I haven't signed it yet," said the actress, who received acclaim for her portrayal of a lovelorn wife named Ila in "The Lunchbox".
