Producer Nikhil Dwivedi shares, "When Vikram shared the script with me to produce, it was one of the most interesting material I had laid my hands on in recent times and I decided within a few hours to participate in this. Ananya is a commendable artist and someone to watch out for in times to come. I am excited that she is in the film."
The cyber thriller recently went on floors and will be shot in a start to finish schedule.
