Saand Ki Aankh has been declared tax free in Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi, which may have contributed to the film's performance at the ticketing counters. Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, announced that the film would be made tax-free in the city so that the "message should reach to people of every age, gender & background―The power of a dream, & the power derived from it to achieve it, despite any socio-cultural blocks.”
Saand Ki Aankh depicts the heroic story of the world's oldest sharpshooters — Chandro and Prakashi Tomar.
Prior to the film's release, Pannu and Pednekar's casting as geriatric characters had become a topic of debate. Neena Gupta and Soni Razdan said that actresses closer to the characters' ages would have been better suited. Recently, Anupam Kher defended Saand Ki Aankh, saying that even he had played an older man in his debut film Saaransh.
