Excited to be a part of the film, the Gangaajal director said in a statement: "Dr. Vashishtha Narayan Singh, the brilliant mathematician from Bihar is our national treasure. His life is so inspiring, I would love to direct a biopic on him."

The film is being produced by Vinay Sinha and his daughter Priti Sinha.
