The trailer also makes references to the 1994 Delhi kidnappings, the 9/11 World Trade Centre attack, the Daniel Pearl kidnapping and the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai. Rajkummar Rao, who plays an antagonist for the first time, said in a statement released by the makers: "Omerta is among the most researched films that I have worked on till date. We actually visited some of the places frequented by Omar in London during his transformation from an LSE graduation student to becoming this deadly terrorist. I needed to feel and touch this man's past - to ingest him."
Rajkummar added that: "It was not an easy journey for me to take. With Omerta and Hansal Sir, we have a combination that will probably leave you stunned. There will be this moment of shock and silence as the end credits roll." The movie has been shot in locations across London and India with recreated versions of Afganistan and Pakistan.
