Vindu Dara Singh the winner of his season will be playing the main villian in the film. Deane Uppal who was in the finals of Bigg Brother will be the heroine and Siddhart Bhardwaj will be playing the hero who was in bigg boss too. Life Non Veg is the name of the film so obviously it won’t be a normal family film but seems like a raunchy comedy.It’s produced Mukesh Modi ,Satish Sharma by & directed by Yogesh Mishra.
