In a joint statement from Multiplex Association of India, the makers of Pippa referred to a newspaper article that said claimed the film heading towards an OTT release. The statement further referred to the article pointing out the "completely unsubstantiated assertions" issues the makers have with multiplex operators, resulting in the OTT release.

The film, directed by Raja Krishna Menon, is based on the India-Pakistan war of 1971 that led to the liberation and birth of Bangladesh.
