Mumbai, Nov 6 (PTI) Arjun Kapoor and Rakul Preet are set to team up for the first time for a yet-to-be-titled family dramedy, the makers announced on Wednesday.

The film will be produced by T-Series, Emmay Entertainment and JA Entertainment.

It will be helmed by debutante director Kaashvie Nair. She previously assisted Nikkhil Advani on 2013 action thriller D-Day and co-directed TV series 'POW: Bandi Yuddh Ke'.

Described as a coming-of-age, cross-border romance, the story has been penned by Anuja Chauhan, Amitosh Nagpal and Nair.

Kapoor said he is looking forward to working on the film.

'I have grown up in a joint family so I understood that it's the biggest pillar of love, strength and support. That's the essence of our film, which has its heart in the right place. I'm having a blast even during the prep,' the actor said in a statement.

The film will go on floors this month and will be shot extensively in Punjab and Los Angeles. PTI RDSRDS
