“The film will have two of everything, two weddings, double the amount of craziness and twice the confusion, all while it mildly touches upon a social issue. I love giving surprises and this film will be full of them,” Singh said.

Set to release next year on July 9, 14 Phere will be shot in locations across India, including Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, and Lucknow. This is the first time that Massey and Kharbanda are working together on a film, Silverscreen India had reported in August.
Singh, who directed the award-winning Hindi comedy-drama Chintu Ka Birthday in 2019, said that while this film was a comedy too, it would “touch upon a social issue.” He said, “[the film] rides on a comedy of errors. Speaking about the characters, they are just like you and me, ordinary people, they are lovely people who come from lovely families and want to get married. I want the audience to root for them.”
The film also features actors Yamini Das, Gauahar Khan and Jameel Khan, among others. Shooting for 14 Phere is expected to finish by mid-January 2021.
