Trivia:
Before the film begins, the following statement is displayed: "None of the characters or situations depicted in this film are imaginary or fictional, really speaking. They are echoes of what is happening all around us in our so called civilized society. At best, these voices - cries, and shrieks, pleas and whispers - have been amplified for deaf people to take note. After all, the greatness of a civilization can only be measured by the status of its women."

Tabu was offered Mahima Chaudhry's role but turned it down.

A. R. Rahman was signed as the film's music director, but opted out.

The film marks Aarti Chhabria's screen debut.
