Speaking of the film, Vidyut said, “I'm thrilled about backing a film that revisits a glorious chapter in history. It's a story of the brilliance of intelligence officers, whom I salute with all my heart. My team and I are grateful to have begun the year on an exciting note.” Director Reddy added, “Here's a film that is about to redefine what it means to be a hero. I'm happy that we're off to a great start.” IB 71 is also produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, Reliance Entertainment and co-produced by Abbas Sayyed.
