The film is the Hindi remake of Telugu horror Bhaagamathie, which featured Baahubali star Anushka Shetty. It follows a woman imprisoned in a haunted house while being interrogated in a corruption case.

Previously, Pednekar had told Press Trust of India she is equal parts "pressured and excited" to shoulder the upcoming film. The actor said, "It is the most challenging and special film for me as it is for the first time, the responsibility will be on my shoulders. Durgavati is something I'm most pressured and excited about."

Arshad was last seen in Anees Bazmee's Pagalpanti, alongside Anil Kapoor, John Abraham, Ileana D'Cruz, Pulkit Samrat, Kriti Kharbanda, Urvashi Rautela, and Saurabh Shukla.
