The film will depict an epic clash between the special forces. The actress revealed that she plays a sniper named Aria. Her vast knowledge about weapons forms the narrative's main plot point. "There’s a lot of action and a little bit of romance with Rinzing," Mirror quoted her as saying.

Jyoti Kapur Das will be helming the project becoming among Bollywood's few female directors who have worked in the action genre. Malvika was confident about Jyoti's potential and stated that she is glad gender stereotypes are being broken with this film.

Malvika stated that she was quite comfortable with her co-star as they had studied in the same school and had the same social circles.

Talking about her aunt Anita's reaction, Malvika said, "She knows Rinzing better than I do as he shares a great bond with her son. My aunt has always been very supportive and it will be interesting for her to see both Rinzing and me in the same film."
