The film was initially scheduled to release on July 9, 2021. However, due to a sudden spike in COVID-19 cases and its second wave, the makers had to postpone the film.

The film shows a modern-day love story between a cross-functional athlete and a transgender. Announcing the film, Ayushmann Khurrana had written, “Next stop: My hometown Chandigarh for the first time Excited to be a part of Abhishek Kapoor‘s delightful progressive love story #ChandigarhKareAashiqui. Produced by Bhushan Kumar and Pragya Kapoor co-starring Vaani Kapoor[sic].” The film’s team wrapped up the shoot in December 2020. Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui became the first Bollywood film to complete its shoot entirely during the pandemic.
Meanwhile, the actor will next be seen in Doctor G, Anubhav Sinha‘s directorial Anek. Apart from this, he recently collaborated with Aanand L Rai for his next Action Hero. On the other hand, Vaani Kapoor was recently seen in Bell Bottom alongside Akshay Kumar, Huma Qureshi, and Lara Dutta.
