However, the film’s unit chanced upon a very old railway station 100 kilometers outside Delhi that looked perfect as a setting for the film.

According to sources, the abandoned railway station and colony at Rewari became the site of one of the biggest partition camps Shardara for the film.

A unit hand says, `The production team wanted to re- create the town of Shardara. Since the original location now has a completely modern look, an alternate location was being searched.
