Our source informs us, "Manasi will be playing a resolute army officer’s wife - she is seen as Mohit Raina's wife and Vicky Kaushal's sister in the film. She has a very bohemian look with lots of accessories and indo-western clothes."

We reached out to Manasi who confirmed and said, "This role was of a strong army wife and that's something we don't get to know about often. What happens to the wives of the army officers when they are are fighting for the country. I have powerful scenes and director Aditya Dhar has written the story beautifully.
