A source revealed to the portal, "The Dalwai Educational Trust Goregaon English School is being converted into a police station for the stint. A chunk of the film, including many of Mrunal’s scenes, will be shot at the site." The Tamil film was a massive hit and Hindi makers will try to achieve a similar feat with its remake. The story revolves around two lookalikes who are the primary suspects in a murder case but do not know each other.

Talking about her cop role, Mrunal Thakur had earlier revealed that it was always on her checklist. "When I heard the story, I instantly knew that I needed to be a part of this film. My character is intriguing, and playing a cop has been on my checklist. This will be distinct from all the characters I have played till now," Mrunal had said.
