The film has been written and directed by his Imtiaz Ali’s brother Sajid Ali. Sajid was set to make his directorial debut way back in 2015, with Banana produced by John Abraham. However, the film probably did not work out.Sajid and Imtiaz have been working on the Laila Majnu script since 2014 now, and looks like they finally were able to put the enormous emotional saga together. Ekta later joined as the co-producer.
