“Pressured by their parents to find spouses, Asha (Pallavi Sharda) and Ravi (Suraj Sharma) pretend to date in order to survive a summer of weddings— but find themselves falling for each other as they struggle to balance who they are with who their parents want them to be.”
The film was largely shot during the height of the pandemic and this came with its own set of challenges, starting with the casting of the two leads taking place over a Zoom call.
Asha and Ravi are in completely different phases of their lives, and as their parents try to set them up together, they quickly realise how incompatible they are.
Asha devises a plan to pretend to date each other, just until the wedding season gets over. But as they spend more time together, the distance between them slowly decreases and the two realise what they really want.
