The film's screenplay and dialogues have been done by Kausar Munir, Rishi Virmani, Vipul Binjola and Sippy. According to Hindustan Times, the film has been in the works since 2014 and is being released five years later.

Sippy, whose credits include Bhrashtachar, Zameen, Saagar, Shakti, Shaan, Sholay, Seeta Aur Geeta and Andaaz, returns to direction almost after two decades. His last film was Zamana Deewana and was released in 1995.

Rajkummar had said that while back the makers of film had asked him to gain weight. "The film will be widely shot in Shimla and I have been asked to gain weight by the makers of the film. I am working very hard to gain weight as I had lost seven kg for Citylights. I have a personal trainer who is working with me to help me gain weight," he said in 2014.

Shimla Mirchi is scheduled to release on 3 January 2020.
