The film aims to bring to life the story of a warrior, who fought for his people and soil, with immense courage.

This would Raut's second biopic, after his debut directorial venture, based on the life of great leader Bal Gangadhar Tilak. There have been reports that suggest how Kajol might star opposite Devgn as Malusare's wife, or that Saif Ali Khan might be seen as the antagonist. However, there has been no official confirmation on this front.
