Reportedly, Devgn's character was an IAF Squadron Leader and Bhuj airport in-charge at that time, who had reconstructed the airbase with the help of 300 women from a nearby village. Directed and written by Abhishek Dudhaiya, the film is touted to have been based on "true story." Presented by Ajay Devgn Films and T-Series, it has been produced by Bhushan Kumar and others.

Back in 2019, when the project was in its nascent stage, Karnik had expressed his feelings about the casting. "I could only see Ajay Devgn essaying my character," the retired officer had said.
