ProductionEdit

The film doesn't advocate the death penalty for convicted rapists.[7][8] Instead, the movie is trying to channel widespread outrage at a perceived increase in sexual crimes against women.[9] The film is set in Delhi. Private equity investors Charu Goel from Delhi and a woman identified as Ms Kothari from Mumbai put money into the film.[10] Some scenes of the film have been shot in Madh Island in northern Mumbai. As many as 400 men auditioned to play the part of the rapist, a role that eventually went to Sunny Hinduja.[11]

The production company released a trailer on YouTube giving two telephone numbers to call in, stating that whether the callers voted to kill the rapist or not would determine how the film would end.
