This film is going to be Srijit's first ever sports biopic. Srijit has arranged training sessions for Sohini at SAI. Sohini is undergoing the training. Srijit will start shooting when Sohini is completely prepared.

Swapna Barman's mother Basana worked on a tea estate and her father, Panchanan Barman, was a rickshaw puller and is bed-ridden (as on today May 3, 2019) after having suffered a stroke in 2013.
