As per a report by entertainment portal Pinkvilla, the action-packed spy series will go on the floors in 2022. The series will be mounted on a large scale and the actors will be undergoing training and workshops to learn various forms of action next year before they start shooting.

The Indian chapter will not be a remake or an adaptation, but rather they plan on extending the story and adapting it to different markets.
