Pratik Gandhi has decided on his third web series, following The Great Indian Murder and Scam 1992: The Harshad Mehta Story (2020). The actor will start shooting For Your Eyes Only in the following month. As per reports, Gandhi will play an R&AW agent in the Netflix series, which is being produced by Sejal Shah and Bhavesh Mandalia, the minds behind Serious Men (2020) and Decoupled (2021).

When the protagonist goes undercover to identify and eliminate security dangers to the nation, the plot of For Your Eyes Only spans India and Budapest. As per Mid Day, the project will begin filming on October 1 and is supported by Sejal and Bhavesh's production company, The Bombay Fables Motion Pictures. Mumbai will serve as the location for the first schedule, and an extensive set is now being built there. The group will next go to Delhi, Rajasthan, and Visakhapatnam before continuing to Budapest. From beginning to end, it will take more than 40 days.

Rajat Kapoor, Tillottama Shome, Sunny Hinduja, and Kritika Kamra are also featured. Gandhi will dress differently, in keeping with the fashion of the '70s. The main characters' appearances have already been constructed by the designer and makeup teams, including that of RN Kao, the first director of India's external intelligence agency, and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

While many movies have portrayed spies as dapper and fashionable, this tale stays true to reality by portraying Pratik's character and other R&AW agents as regular men whose duty it is to blend in. Over a year has been spent researching the topic. Gaurav Shukla and director Sumit Purohit are among the creators who want it to be real and nasty. There will be depictions of significant real-life events from that decade.

In addition to Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Heeramandi, the source said For Your Eyes Only would be one of the largest drama series approved by Netflix India. An international DoP has been hired. The price is also high because sets recreating certain Pakistani cities will be constructed for key scenes. The name comes from the fact that secret materials sent to the prime minister by intelligence services are usually enclosed in an envelope bearing the phrase "For Your Eyes Only."
