Bholaa is the official Hindi remake of director Lokesh Kanagaraj’s successful Tamil film Kaithi, which was released in 2019.

Although Bholaa is Amala’s first Bollywood film, it’s not her first Hindi project. Her first appearance in this language happened earlier this year in the Voot web-series Ranjish Hi Sahi. The show was inspired on the life of veteran filmmaker and producer Mahesh Bhatt, who was also the show's creator. The late actress Parveen Babi inspired Amala's character in the show Amna Parvez.
