The director wants Kangana to get her accent and body language right considering she has to sport a Gujjuben in America attitude. She will reportedly play a 30-year-old divorced lady's character. Written by Apoorva Asrani, Simran is said to be a light-hearted film.

Hansal said: "After Aligarh, which was emotionally very exhausting, we wanted to do a carefree, fun film. We're having a ball with this one. We have shot the film all over the US — in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco and Atlanta."

Kangana is known to be really good in such light-hearted movies. Her previous films Queen and Tanu Weds Manu Returns were family and light-hearted films, while the Rangoon didn't prove lucky for her.
