Nikkhil, who has previously directed films like Kal Ho Naa Ho, Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute To Love and Chandni Chowk To China on Wednesday took to Twitter to announce his next project. 

"To infinity and beyond! Proud to announce a story we've worked to bring to Emmay Entertainment, Mission to Mars, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani," he tweeted.
