It has alleged that Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) should not have given certification to the film as actors have performed the "character of public personalities", like Manmohan Singh, Congress president Rahul Gandhi and his mother Sonia Gandhi which constitutes an offence under section 416 (cheating by personation) of the Indian Penal Code. They also raised slogans against the actors and the producer of the film. It has been produced by Bohra Bros and released Rudra Production in association with Jayantilal Gada under the banner of Pen India Limited.
