Directed by Ajay Bahl, Section 375 is a Panorama Studios production and presented by T-Series.

The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, and Abhishek Pathak, and co-produced by Aditya Choksi and Sanjeev Joshi.

The film's former director, Manish Gupta, who had also penned the script, was reportedly removed from the project. Owing to Akshaye's alleged preference for The Accidental Prime Minister, the producer and director of Section 375 had a fallout.

As reported earlier, Manish's demands to move on to a different director with his script was met with a termination notice by the producer on 21 May.

However, it seems matters have settled down as Section 375 finally sees the light of day.
