Speaking about the film, Adivi told Indian express that the film is a tribute to Sandeep Unnikrishnan. He was quoted as saying, “The world only knows how heroic he was and how he died in his final moments. But, everything I loved about him was the way he lived. 26/11 was not the chapter that defined him. Yes, it was an important chapter. But, he was a captain in 7th Bihar when he fought in Kargil. He served in Hyderabad. He went to the National Defence Academy. He was a training officer in the National Security Guard. I was interested in how beautifully he lived his life. That’s what I wanted to make a movie about.”

Adivi has also written the script of the film, besides playing the lead role. It is his passion project and is a result of years of research in Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan’s life.

The film is simultaneously shot in Telugu and Hindi. It is jointly bankrolled by Sony Pictures Releasing International, G Mahesh Babu Entertainment, and A+S Movies. The film also features Sobhita Dhulipala and Saiee Manjrekar. It is directed by Sashi Kiran Tikka.
