The film was inspired by various cricket girls in Karachi, Pakistan. Normally a male-friendly game is played in the sub-continent. It is also the first Pakistani film to feature a female protagonist as a professional cricketer.

The film was shot entirely on real and virgin locations which required months of preparation.

Yumna Zaidi’s debut on the silver screen. She practiced rigorously for six months to ace the role of a professional cricketer.

The majority of the cricketing girls featured in the film are actual cricket players. Director Umair Nasir Ali urged the producers of the film to have real cricketers around Yumna Zaidi. All of the girls had their first acting experience.
