Adivi Sesh has been working on director Sashi Kiran Tikka for the past two years. He plays the role of 26/11 hero Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan in the film, which will highlight the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. On the 13th anniversary of the attack, Adivi Sesh remembered Major Sandeep Unnikrishnan. In an interview with IANS, Adivi Sesh said, "You remember his heroics, his firm expression as he stood strong even as Mumbai’s iconic Taj Mahal Palace Hotel burned. While researching my character, I realized he was the first to crack a joke even in the most difficult circumstances. He had an extremely captivating smile. We did not have to deliberately bring laughter into the narrative … it flowed inorganically."

 
Sesh revealed that he was in the US when the tragedy happened. He said, "When I first saw the picture of Major Sandeep, it struck me hard. I felt an instant connection with the photograph, for he resembled some of my cousins. He and I look similar in many ways. wasn’t just the case of me learning more about a warrior. It was something else. Something about his photo made me keep thinking about him. Going on, I kind of became an admirer to him, which resulted in creating a path to make a movie on his life.”
