As a part of their preparatory sessions, Sushant and Bhumi reportedly spent time with some former dacoits and the locals of Chambal. Bhumi's preparatory sessions were not merely confined to interactions with the locals. The actress also isolated herself for about a month in order to get into the skin of her character. In an interview earlier this month, Bhumi told news agency IANS: "Acting for me is a process of metamorphosis. It's about forgetting who I am and becoming someone entirely new. Until and unless I find the person I'm looking to become, I don't find my peace. I de-cluttered myself and lived with my character for about 30 days."
Sonchiriya was earlier scheduled to release on February 8. However, the film's release got postponed and it will finally hit the screens on Friday. The film has been extensively shot in Chambal, Madhya Pradesh.
