Production[edit]

Rabby Tiwana whilst studying B.Tech in TV production and media technology at Centre For Advanced Media Studies, Punjabi University developed the series. Most of the cast in the web-series are also the students of Punjabi University including Pukhraj Bhalla and Karan Sandhawalia. The principal photography of the series began in April 2017.[6]

Due to his previous successful documentary he went to produce the web-series by himself only under his production company Troll Punjabi. Tiwana said, “After my documentary won various awards, my parents got convinced that I was on the right track, so they helped me with the project.” “It was meant to be for television, but no channel took it up; some found the quality poor, some had other issues, so, I finally gave the satellite rights to Troll Punjabi (a web page started by him) and kept the web rights with myself,” adds the director. Jung Bahadur Singh, teacher, said, “This is an all-student production; they haven’t hired a single professional.”[6]

Soundtrack[edit]

Soundtrack of the web-series is composed by Mista Baaz, Sarang Sikander, Preet Hundal, Sharan Shergill, Kru172, Dreamboy and JT Bhatti which features vocals from Sharry Mann, Sardool Sikander, Sarang Sikander, Preet Hundal, Daman Kaushal, Pukhraj Bhalla, Karan Sandhawalia, Rabia Sagoo and Harinder Samra.[7] All the tracks were released by Troll Punjabi themselves only. The theme and promotional track of series sung by Mann went viral, and has been viewed over 70 million times on YouTube.[8]
