Talking about the film, Kumar said, "As a producer, I'm always on the lookout for something new. On Visfot, we have Sanjay Gupta, who has a signature style of making movies. And we have Kookie Gulati to helm it." "From Fardeen, Riteish to the team, we have a fiery combination at hand much like the title of Visfot," he further added.
"The opportunity to work with this combination and actors like Riteish and Fardeen is indeed rare. I can't wait to share this incredible story with the audience," Gulati said. Meanwhile, Gupta said, "Every film has its own destiny and timing. This film happened to me when the world had shut down in the pandemic." Recently, the mahurat pooja of the film was also held.

The film was a flop as it could not even earn back half of its budget at the domestic box office.
