"This is a story 20 years in the making. The story moved me passionately as a filmmaker ever since I made a documentary on the subject. I have always wanted to tell this largely unheard story of our valiant INA soldiers, who were fighting for our country's independence in a land far away from Indian soil," Khan told Mid-Day.

The publication further mentions the show was extensively shot across Thailand, Singapore, and Malaysia, while certain locations were recreated in Mumbai. The makers have reportedly invested heavily in making sure the show seems as authentic as possible.
