The filmmakers in 2019 had shelved the project which was titled Sukha Kahlwan and a written agreement was signed. A spokesperson of Punjab government revealed that the Chief Minister will not allow films and music which promotes crime, violence, drugs and gangsterism. Such films and songs will not only be banned but stringent action will be taken against such persons.
