"The makers were looking for someone who could match Akshay’s comic timing and they narrowed down on Arshad who, over the years, has aced this space.

"It’s a first time pairing for the actors. His (Arshad) track is integral to the narrative, with multiple shades and a special look," the makers said in a statement.

Farhad Samji, best known for "Housefull 4", will direct the movie.
