D Company is touted as Indian cinema's first action anthology. Scenarists Ranjith and A. K. Sajan were also approached for writing two of the films but they rejected. Anoop Menon, who scripted Gangs of Vadakkumnathan, was also initially reluctant to do the project. In an interview, he said, "I have been approached to write a part of D Company. But, right now, my hands are full and I haven't got time to sit and think about it." Parvathy Nair was chosen to play the wife of the character played by Jayasurya.

Shaji Kailas's featurette Godse is based on the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi. The director says, "The movie is about the conflict of emotions and explores the turmoil that Godse goes through the night before he kills Mahatma Gandhi. It's basically the fight between the good and the evil. There is an intense struggle that Godse goes through before committing the crime. Finally, he does it, justifying it as God's wish." The film has only a few characters and will be made as a soliloquy of Nathuram Godse, as he weighs the pros and cons of his deed. The film is inspired by the controversial book Freedom at Midnight by Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre. According to the director, the film evolved from the final pages of the book, which describes what Godse went through before assassinating Gandhi. Godse will start filming as soon as Kailas finishes his project Madirasi.
