The initial name of this movie, Kizie Aur Manny was re-christened as Dil Bechara in Feb 2019. The current name, Dil Bechara, has been drawn from the lyrics of a song in the film, which is penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya and composed by AR Rahman. The makers felt that Dil Bechara title embodies the theme of the movie perfectly. In August 2018, a song was shot in one of the premier colleges of Ranchi. Mukesh Chabbra was selected to helm the direction of this project in October 2017. However, he was later suspended from the film over sexual harassment allegations by multiple women against him during the #metoo movement in Oct 2018. He was subsequently given a clean chit by ICC and the Federation of Western India Cine Employees. Farah Khan is the dance choreographer for this film.
