The film has been shot in many real locations which also includes Captain Vikram Batra's hometown, Leh, Dharamshala, Ladakh, and Kargil.

The movie has been produced by Hiroo Yash Johar, Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, Shabbir Boxwala, Ajay Shah and Himanshu Gandhi. Director Vishnu Varadhan will be helming the war saga.

The movie was scheduled to come earlier but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the release was delayed and is now set to release on 2 July. According to a report by Hindustan Times, the film was shot way back in 2019 in Kargil. The portions that were left to be shot were resumed once the lockdown was lifted.

The report added that the actors and crew members had made sure that their location of the shoot was thoroughly cleared of any debris after they were done with the shooting.
