Earlier, revealing details about her character in the film, Kangana had said:

"I play a bank robber in the film. The story is inspired by real-life incidents but not directly by Sandeep Kaur. It's about a Gujarati girl who dreams of making it big, she sets out to fulfill her mother's dream but ends up losing everything. She is very self-assured, that's an endearing trait about the community."

While Simran will be directed by Hansal Mehta, the story of the film has been penned down by Apurva Asrani, a National Award-winning editor, who has earlier written the screenplays of critically acclaimed films like Shahid, Citylights, and Saty
