Vaani Kapoor continued, “To prep for my role, I went through some movies and looks as references from that time. I saw films starring Parveen Babi and Rekha. The director (Ranjit M Tewari) and I drew certain references that I could incorporate in my looks. What I like about this character is that irrespective of being from that time period, she is a working woman, a level-headed and centered individual.”

Helmed by Ranjit M Tewari, the plot of the film is inspired from the real life hijacking events that took place in the 1980s.
