The producer in an Interview with Express Tribune stated that ISPR, had allocated the production budget for the Samjhota Express Scene but they were also kind enough to allow the film crew access to certain locations for Film Shooting. Including a location a kilometer away from the Indian Border for the scene where Shaheed Major Aziz Bhatti's was martyred.[7] The film's Post-production has been done locally in the city of Lahore.[8] The film currently is believed to be the most expensive film made at the moment therefore it took the film crew almost 4 years to produce an official trailer for the film.[9][10]
