The film is based on the Saumya Joshi’s successful Gujarati play with the same name. Umesh, who recently began shooting for the film said, “Amitji and Rishiji are collaborating after 26 years. They are playing Gujarati characters for the first time. Being a Gujarati myself, I had certain references in my mind which we used to create their look”.

The director said that he had been the producer of the original play and knew that it its unique story could be made in to a film.
