The first look of the film, released in December, promised a cross-cultural British rom-com. The film follows a filmmaker Zoe (James) and juxtaposes her journey to love (swiping on dating apps and bad dates) with that of her close friend Kazim (Latif) who opts for an arranged marriage. She records his journey from London to Lahore as he sets off to marry a stranger and starts questioning her own ideas of love.
Sajal Aly shared the exciting news with their fans on social media.
