Earlier titled Womaniya, the film was renamed as Saand Ki Aankh following a legal tussle with journalist-producer Pritish Nandy’s production house.
Saand Ki Aaankh is based on the lives of octogenarian sharpshooters Chandro and Prakashi Tomar, popularly known as the ‘Revolver Dadis’ of Johri, Uttar Pradesh. They reportedly took up sharpshooting in their 50s. The actors are currently shooting in Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh. The film also features Prakash Jha and Vicky Kadian in pivotal roles.
