    Sushil Rajpal, who graduated from the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), always wanted to make movies on social issues and highlighting peopleā€™s agony.[3] Because of his interest in photography, Rajpal specialized in cinematography. He even forayed into the Hindi cinema industry by shooting Pradeep Sarkar's Laaga Chunari Mein Daag. During one of his interviews, he revealed his inspiration for his debut movie:

    The movie is based on real life story of one of my close friends who was abducted at Barhariya in Begusarai district of Bihar and was later forced to marry a girl against his wishes.[3]

    Groom kidnapping is a practice that is common in the Indian states of western Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh. In this practice, eligible bachelors are abducted by a bride's family and forcefully married so that they can avoid paying high dowry to the groom's family. The practice started becoming noticeable towards the late 20th century because the brides' families found it difficult to meet these demands. Organized gangs came forward to carry out these abductions as a solution to their problem.[6][7]

    For this film, he wanted to shoot real-life situations and cast actors who could speak with a local accent. The director's intention was to highlight the result of such forced marriage and the emotional damage that both the girl and the boy suffer from. Most parts of the movie have been shot in Bihar, the region where the issue of groom kidnapping is prevalent. Rajpal's roots from this region was of good help during the film's production.[3]

    The film does not have established actors, because Rajpal wanted people who looked real and could deliver dialogs with a rural appeal. Actor Raj Singh Chaudhary, who earlier featured in Anurag Kashyap's Gulaal, plays the male lead. Until he read the script, Chaudhary thought that he had seen it all. It was only after reading it, he realized that incidents like these happen after all.[8] Swati Sen, an FTII graduate, debuted as an actor by portraying the female protagonist in this film.[9] Vinay Pathak and Akhilendra Mishra were chosen to play the supporting roles.[2] Besides actors Sen and Mishra, nearly 85% of the cast hailed from Bihar.
