The film marks the directorial debut of Gopi Puthran, who served as a writer on the first installment, which was directed by Pradeep Sarkar. Mukerji is reprising the role of the fearless and committed Superintendent of Police, Shivani Shivaji Roy in the film. The 'edge-of-the-seat thriller' sees Shivani in a race against time to capture a brutal serial rapist who systematically targets women.

While talking about the film, Rani had previously mentioned, "Shivani will face a cold, merciless villain who has no empathy, no fear of God and is pure evil. The character has been written superbly and I'm excited to find out who the actor will be."
