Priti Sinha, the director of  Reel Life Entertainment (I) Pvt Ltd told DNA that they will announce the film in Patna on 27 July.

Dr Vashishtha Narayan Singh, on whom the film will be based, is said to have challenged Einstein’s theory of relativity. However, despite an illustrious career which included working on space theory at NASA and teaching at India's prominent institutions after his return to the country, he languished in poverty. He also suffered from schizophrenia after marriage, which led to them parting ways a few years later.
