Anu Menon's directorial film has been on production under Vikram Malhotra and Sony Pictures Networks Productions. Anu cooperated with Nayanika Mahtani to write the screenplay, on the other hand, Ishita Moitra wrote the dialogues.

In a statement by Director of the Indian Amazon Prime Video Vijay Subramaniam shared:

"At Prime Video we believe in listening to what our consumers want and working backwards from there. This belief is the genesis of our latest offering. Over the last 2 years, Prime Video has become the destination of choice for our customers to watch new releases, across the languages, within weeks of their theatrical release. Now we’re taking this one step further, with seven of India’s most-anticipated films premiering exclusively on Prime Video, bringing the cinematic experience to their doorstep."

Amidst the nationwide lockdown, many theater chains have been unsatisfied with films directing to streaming platforms and skipping their releases at the theaters.
