The idea of Crossword came with the idea of Collaboration with few youtubers / social media influencers. Soon the collab idea was turned into a proper series plan. Shubhayan Chandra wrote the initial storyline, and narrated to the team, who further pushed into making the web series. Then Royale Entertainment was approached for production and successfully Deepak Punjabi produced the entire show. However main challenge was to get the collaboration idea formulated into proper film making, with Social media influencers, who had least idea about acting in a production. Online workshop through google meet was conducted during Late November & early December, 2020. The casting was finalized through video calls, and final casts were called to Kolkata for the main workshop, which started from December 24th 2020, and ran till January 2, 2021. Shooting for first phase started on 3rd January 2021.
