It seems that a part of the collections will be donated to the Widow Colony in Tilak Vihar, Delhi, which provides shelter to thousands of families affected during the 1984 anti-Sikh pogrom in the aftermath of the assassination of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The film team had visited Widow Colony while preparing for the film and had spoken to many residents there to get an idea of the situation during the 1984 riots. Needless to say, the incidents that the residents shared with the film team moved them to such an extent that they decided to do something for them.

 

Confirming the same, writer-producer Harry Sachdeva said, “When we visited the Widow Colony for research purposes for our film, we were so emotionally overwhelmed at the plight of the families residing there that we decided to share a part of the revenue collected from the film with them.”
