When Sandeep Verma, the director of the movie, and his team were seeking permissions to shoot in Uttar Pradesh, they had to use a pseudo name for the movie and say they were shooting for a romantic movie. This enabled them to not only smoothly shoot the movie but also shoot at the real locations where Manjunath experienced many incidents in his life.
One day, when the cast and crew were done shooting at a petrol pump, Sanjeev was walking around a petrol pump and noticed something suspicious. The owner of the petrol pump also noticed Sanjeev loitering and immediately sent his men to catch him but luckily, the director managed to jump into his car and escaped. The cast and crew also had to call the police for their protection who did their duty dressed in civil clothing so no one would take notice of their presence.
