Sajal had previously revealed in an interview why she decided to work on the film, stating, "One of the reasons why I agreed to be a part of this project was because it beautifully showcases Pakistani culture. The portrayal of the country in this film is vibrant, colourful, and full of joy, which is a refreshing contrast from the usual portrayal of Pakistanis as terrorists in films. So, I thank Jemima for writing such a fantastic script."
The plot of the movie surrounded Zoe's expedition on filming a documentary on his friend Kazim’s arranged marriage journey. In the movie, Zoe filmed the journey from London to Lahore as he sets off to marry a stranger.
