As a film maker Varadraj Swami says, After Manjhi-The Mountain Man, I and writer Shahzad Ahmed had started developing a coming-of-age story of Kabaad – The Coin long back. Most of time invested for this movie, was in the research. To develop each and every thought, they needed to go to Kabaadi Market and met so many Kabaadi sellers. After that, second problem they faced was to research the world of antique coins and auction. They took a lot of time to understand about antique coins and the auction world, it was really wonderful experience. Then they transformed the story of Kabaad – The Coin into a script.
