Raghu Shastri, a former assistant to Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap was approached by Raghavendra Rajkumar to direct the script which he had made ready. Actor Vinay found the script interesting and agreed to star in the film choosing this as his second venture after the success of his first film Siddhartha (2015). The script is said to have a blend of both romance and thriller concepts.[5] Early reports suggested the film would launch in November 2015 which eventually got postponed to December 2015.


Soon after selecting Raghu Shastry to direct the film, producer Raghavendra Rajkumar along with his actor son Vinay Rajkumar went on to search for the two female leads by browsing through around 500 photographs. They finalized Rukhsar Mir and Sushmita Joshi to play the roles. While Rukhsar hails from Darjeeling and doing her studies in Bangalore, Sushmita also is from Northern India. Veteran actor Devaraj was roped in to play an important supporting role.


Manikanth Kadri has composed the score and original soundtrack for the film. Actor Puneeth Rajkumar has recorded a song for the film.[6]
