In a statement, John said, "This is a story about human relationships. I decided to develop a film on riders and their love for motorcycles in-house two years ago. A lot of research and time has been spent on the subject since then. I am especially excited that we will film the action sequences in the Isle of Man, the home of racing on real roads."

The film will be produced by Ajay Kapoor and D'Silva. Talking of the film, D’Silva said, it will be "an adrenaline pumping, emotionally charged bike racing film". 

Meanwhile, John will be seen in ‘Romeo Akbar Walter’ next month and ‘Batla House’ post that.
