Puri had reportedly assisted filmmakers Habib Faisal and Manish Sharma in their films Ishaqzaade and Daawat-E-Ishq respectively.
Talking about his grandfather, Puri said while talking to the tabloid said, “Dadu is the God whom I pray to. I was so close to him that I would sleep between him and my grandmother. When he passed away, for me it was like losing the protective cover of an umbrella. It was then, that I decided that if I do something, it would be for my grandfather and this film is an ode to him.”
The makers of the untitled film haven’t yet finalised the leading lady. Details about the film haven’t been announced yet.
