The thought of making Beautiful World hit Shlok after he read news reports of the Bulandshahr gangrape case which took place in 2016. The case which was widely reported, involved the gangrape of a mother and daughter who were travelling in a car with their family. The car was waylaid on a highway by criminals, the driver was overpowered, while the women were sexually assaulted.
