The statement added, “For Zoe’s childhood friend and neighbor Kaz (Shazad Latif), the answer is to follow his parents’ example and opt for an arranged (or “assisted”) marriage to a bright and beautiful bride from Pakistan. As Zoe films Kaz’s journey from London to Lahore to marry a stranger, chosen by his parents, she begins to wonder if she might have something to learn from a profoundly different approach to finding love.”

The film will be released in cinemas on January 27th next year. The film has been produced by Jemima Goldsmith, former wife of former Prime Minister Imran Khan. The film was first announced in 2020 when the journalist announced that she will be producing her first romantic comedy.
