"I have a three-film contract with Arbaaz, but at the same time he has been very sweet to me and said that if I get a good offer from a good producer and with a good star cast, I should go ahead," Dogra said.

"He has been a guiding force for me and always gives me ideas on how to go about certain things. But at the same time I will wait and see what kind of response I'll get for this film ('Dolly...')," he added.

The movie features Sonam Kapoor and Rajkummar Rao, among others.

Dogra said he had also narrated the script to Arbaaz's father Salim Khan, a noted scriptwriter.

"We did narrate this script to Salim Khan and he liked the script and asked us to go ahead with the film," said Dogra.
