In a statement, John said, "By doing what we do with dedication and focus, we hope to make a truly engaging film with this remake. This film also fits right into our future plans as we believe that the Hindi film industry will bounce back with efficient and entertaining projects soon after the COVID-19 crisis."
John has previously backed films like Ayushmann Khurrana's debut Vicky Donor, as well as Madras Cafe, Rocky Handsome, Force 2, Parmanu: The Story of Pokhran, and Batla House, in which he also starred.
