Esha Deol has stated that she was first approached for the film only as an actress. But she took an interest in the script and along with her husband Bharat Takhtani decided to co-produce the film. In the backdrop of the ongoing pandemic, the film goes directly to the Voot OTT platform.
Esha Deol was last seen on screen in the Kannada film C/o Footpath Part 2 directed by Kishan in 2015. That film was also released in Hindi and Telugu. Before that she was seen in the 2011 film Tell Me O Khuda. Ek Duaa will therefore be only her third film in a decade.
