Without giving away much, she said, “I can’t reveal much about the plot but it’s a film about Sanjay and me, where he is playing my husband. He will be seen as a retired teacher and I am playing his wife who is very normal and not very educated kind of person and we also have a son.

Interestingly, Neena Gupta and Sanjay Mishra have also been a part of the National School of Drama, where Neena was senior to him. Upon collaborating with Sanjay Mishra, Neena said, “Well, I had not met him or known him before the shoot. He is a really good actor and an equally good person and there’s no problem. We also got along well. I first met him during the costume trial session and it was so nice and normal. We met like we have known each other for a long time. Looking forward to working with Sanjay.”
Gwalior also stars Manav Vij and Sumit Gulati in pivotal roles and is written and being directed by filmmaker-duo Jaspal Singh Sandhu and Rajeev Barnwal, who have produced several Punjabi films in the past.
