He is there in spirit with the team of Vijayendra Prasad who has written the story and screenplay, and Prasoon Joshi who has penned the dialogue and lyrics, working closely with Kangana to wrap up the film.” (Also Read: Cannes 2018: Kangana Ranaut is having the time of her life at French Reviera and these videos are proof)
