DevelopmentEdit

Pratim D. Gupta clarified the fact that the film is neither an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Bimal Mitra, nor does it have any connection with the earlier film adaptations of the novel. The story of the film has been totally created by Gupta himself and the script was written five years before the development, prior to Paanch Adhyay.[1]

Though titles like Jimmy Jaya Javed and Trikaal were initially into consideration for the film, it was finally chosen to be Shaheb Bibi Golaam.[1]

CastingEdit

The film marks the first collaboration between the director and the lead actors. Though Mukherjee was initially opted for the female lead in Paanch Adhyay, the role later switched over to Dia Mirza. Anjan Dutt instantly gave a nod to the film when he heard the script while being in a casual discussion with Gupta. Dutt will be playing the role of a middle-aged Anglo-Indian contract-killer and Mukherjee's character will be that of middle-class housewife. Ritwick Chakraborty will be portraying the role of a taxi driver, who is in a relationship with the character played by Parno Mittra.[1]

FilmingEdit

Shooting for the film started from November 2014.[1]

MusicEdit

The music for Shaheb Bibi Golaam is composed by Anupam Roy and the lyrics have been penned by Anupam himself. The music rights have been acquired by Amara Muzik. The full music album was released on 6 August 2016.
