Gulshan Rai and Shabbir Boxwala used to go to a gymnasium of Sunil Shetty. One day during exercise, a plot came in the mind of Shabbir Boxwala and he told it to Gulshan Rai. From there, they started to complete the story of Mohra as an action packed thriller.
The original leading lady was 'Divya Bharti' , but after her death, 'Raveena' was signed as her replacement. Ashwariya Rai was also considered but she was busy in Miss World competition. Raveena first hesitated in doing the film as she thought that female actress had no important role in an action packed film.
