Director Tinu Desai elaborated on the era of 'Mission Raniganj' and said:
It was clear in my mind that I had to shoot the entire film in Raniganj. We said that they recreated the 1989 mines and were powered by steam rather than engines. We went to 25 different coal mines and counted every spot. We finally identified the ideal location for coal mining in 2021, as it also corresponded to the era we were seeking. Since the location had been determined, the biggest issue was to display the coal mine, and we had to construct a different world in less time, but my production team did research and we completed the world in the time frame provided.
'Mission Raniganj' is scheduled to be released on 6 October 2023.
