However, Apte gave a befitting reply to trollers while talking about the leaked scene.

Talking about her lovemaking scene with Adil Hussain, Apte had said, "It wasn't easy because I was contending with my own body image issues at the time. So, having to be nude on screen was a little intimidating. Now I can bare it all anywhere. I'm proud of my body shape and size. I really needed a role like this because when you're in Bollywood you're constantly told what to do with your body and I always maintained that I would never do anything to my body or face."

The film was helmed by Leena Yadav. The movie depicts the tales of four women from a Gujarat village, who were struggling due to social evils like child marriage, marital rape, and abuse, the practice of taking dowry. Besides Apte, the film also features Tannishtha Chatterjee, Surveen Chawla, Adil Hussain, and others.
