A source clsoe to the development told Peeping Moon, "Producer Ekta Kapoor has been planning a sequel to The Dirty Picture for a long time. And she has finally cracked an idea after exploring dozens of them over the years. Screenplay writer Kanika Dhillon, who’s known for writing critically-acclaimed female-led stories such as Manmarziyaan, Haseen Dillruba, Judgemental Hai Kya, and Rashmi Rocket, among others, has been brought on board to pen this film. She is writing the script along with a male writer, and is expected to finish it by year’s end. Ekta and her team at Balaji Motion Pictures are all excited about this special project, and plan to take it to the floors in the first quarter of 2023.”

Th source further added, "Ekta wanted to cast Kangana Ranaut, but she has politely turned down the offer as she doesn’t want to disturb her righteous image. Taapsee, Kriti, and others have expressed their interest, but Ekta has requested them to wait until the writing is finished.
