Diljit for the role not only had to get trained by the former captain but also underwent a physical transformation to look like him. Speaking about how hard it was to train for it, Diljit in an interview said, "The role was extremely draining with so much intense training. Physically, it was very tough. I had a lot of problems post shooting the film. When I was shooting, I had stopped consuming sugar, I used to eat salt very less".

The film stars Diljit Dosanjh, Taapsee Pannu and Angad Bedi. It is directed by Shaad Ali and will release on July 13.
