R Balki had been planning to make a thriller for a long time now and had the time to work on this idea during the lockdown. What started as an idea, soon developed into a screenplay and the way the script has turned out, Balki feels Dulquer Salmaan is the best choice for the role. Dulquer had made his Hindi debut with Irrfan Khan and Mithila Palkar starrer Karwaan, then moved on to The Zoya Factor opposite Sonam Kapoor Ahuja.
The film is expected to go on floors post the second wave of coronavirus settles down.
