The movie is produced by Dharma Productions and Alia's own production company Eternal Sunshine production. The makers treated fans to an animated teaser of the film, which is slated to release in 2024.

It read, "Presenting Jigra, directed by the extremely talented @vasanbala and produced by @dharmamovies & @eternalsunshineproduction. From debuting in a Dharma production to now producing a film with them, in many ways, it feels like coming full circle from where I started. Every day is a different day... exciting, challenging (and a little scary)... not just as an actor but also as a producer as we bring this film to life, and I CANNOT wait to share more as we move forward."
