It produced by Shahrukh Khan's Red Chillies Entertainment and directed by Atul Sabharwal.

On talking about playing Shukla he says, "Playing a cop is quite tricky. I bagged this role after several rounds of audition by casting director Abhimanyu Ray. So, when I came to know that Shahrukh Khan is producing it and it will be streaming on Netflix, it became a larger-than-life project for me. We were trained for two months for getting into the character of a police officer. Since it's a period film, we had to prepare ourselves keeping that era in mind. I feel very fortunate about getting such great responses".

On talking about working with Bobby Deol, he adds, "It was a wonderful experience. Being a 90s kid, I'm a very big fan of his. First time when I saw him I was very excited. But he is very humble, giving and down to earth and makes his co-stars comfortable. We used to talk a lot on sets and he helped us a lot. He never made us feel he is a star".
