Talking about the project Aditya Roy Kapur said, “I am inspired and excited to be part of telling such an interesting story. The original film was incredibly riveting and entertaining, and it left a lasting impression on me. As an actor, getting a chance to do a double role is double the preparation and double the challenge, and I’m certainly up for it! I look forward to collaborating with Bhushanji, Murad Bhai and Vardhan to bring this exciting thriller to the screen soon.”

Adding further the actor mentioned, "When Murad Bhai shared the idea of the Hindi remake of Thadam I was excited as it had received a lot of acclaims down south. Working with like-minded people is always fun, that is why I like collaborating with Murad Bhai. The last film we did with Aditya was an action film and everyone loved him in that role. We all mutually agreed he will fit the characters in this as well".
 
The film is backed by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Murad Khetani’s Cine1 Studios.
