Helmed by Tushar Hiranandani, Saand Ki Aankh depicts the heroic story of the world's oldest sharpshooters — Chandro and Prakashi Tomar. Apart from Taapsee and Bhumi, Saand Ki Aankh also features director Prakash Jha and Mukkabaaz actor Viineet Singh in pivotal roles. The film was criticised by senior actresses for casting two young actresses in the roles of 60-year-olds. Set in the hinterlands of Uttar Pradesh, the film went on floors in Meerut in February. Originally titled Womaniya, the film was renamed Saand Ki Aankh, following a title rights dispute. Recently, Saand Ki Aankh was exempted from the state Goods and Services Tax (SGST) in Rajasthan.

The film is also produced by Nidhi Parmar, and is scheduled to hit theatres on 25 October during the Diwali weekend. The film will face a box office clash with Farhad Samji's ensemble comedy Housefull 4and Rajkummar Rao-starrer Made in China.
