The film's story was set against the backdrop of the collapse of an under-construction Metro bridge. This was inspired by a real-life event that occurred in Mumbai in 2012 that left 1 dead and 8 injured.
This was Nishikant Kamat's last film as a director. He died of liver cirrhosis in August 2020. The film's lead actor Irrfan Khan died a few months before him in April 2020.
While Irrfan Khan played the lead role in the film, his wife Sutapa Sikdar was one of its producers.
