Tigmanshu, who has churned out movies like Bullet Raja and Shagird to name a few began this project in July last year. Calling it a difficult movie to make, the director was quoted by a leading newspaper as saying that working on a subject like this is not possible in Bollywood given that producers are often reluctant to take up stories based on the Indian National Army.
The film is produced by Rajya Sabha Television, who has joined hands with UFO Moviez as its strategic partner for a pan-India release.
