The making of the movie started in November 2014 in beautiful Kashmir valley and followed up by Amritsar. The second schedule of the shoot started in March in Patiala, Chail and in moderately warm Shimla. Some parts of the movie was shot in Sonamarg,an alpine valley is situated at the bank of Nallah Sindh, 87 km north-east from Srinagar. The cast and crew of Pulkit Samrat and Yami Gautam starrer ‘Junooniyat’ were supposed to shoot for a song sequence in Mumbai but had to drop their plans at last moment as the director wanted to get the perfect flavor because the movie is based on Punjab. Later, the song was shot on actual locations in Punjab.
Pulkit Samrat had to choose this movie over his honeymoon because he had to spend time with Army officers as filmmaker Vivek Agnihotri wanted him to spend five days in Mau before they started shooting, to learn the body language and manners of army officers so that Pulkit could be into the character of an Army officer, which he played in the movie.
A horrifying incident happened when the crew was returning from Kashmir, they were apparently hounded and assaulted by Kashmiri locals for using native girls in a song sequence.
