She further reveals that Dear Exes will a stark departure from male-centric romantic comedies. " The film is not in the mould of a typical rom-com. Under this genre, we have plenty of slice-of-life narratives about men going through a breakup but we seldom explore how a girl goes through the same emotions. We rarely have any soup girls. Dear Exes is a refreshing take on that."

Further detailing the project, the first-time filmmaker adds, "Fun and quirkiness is the mood of the film. But it's not just about that alone; it also has a relevant message for today's youth, enhanced with a touch of fantasy and magic. But even though it is an amalgamation of many things, I still choose to call it a relationship drama."

Apart from Nithya, the ensemble cast of the film also includes Prateik Babbar, Vinay Rai, Navdeep, and Deepak Parambol.

Although the film will show a female perspective, Kamini clarifies that Dear Exes is not a typical female-centric film. "Unlike the idea of 'soup boys', which could only be relatable to men, Dear Exes is for everyone. I am confident that the film will connect with the audience irrespective of their gender, " signs off the director.
