Jasraj Singh Bhatti, the director of the film said, “The story of the film came across to me on a piece of paper which was present in my father (Late) Jaspal Bhatti’s file which contained all his lectures which he used to take at Mad Arts. The moment I read the story, I was taken aback by its beautiful story structure. He had never discussed this story with me. It was sheer coincidence that it came across to me. The film is a tribute from me to him.”
