The film has been written and directed By Sarvesh Mewara and produced By Ronnie Screwvala. It also stars Anshul Chauhan, Varun Mitra, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vishak Nair, Kashyap Shangari, Sunit Tandon, Rio Kapadia, Mohan Agashe and Mushtaq Kak. The film also has quite a few good songs like Dil Hai Ranjhana and Jaan Da.

The film's popular line "Chhedoge to chhodenge nahi (if you mess with us, we won't spare you)" has been used by Kangana during the film's promotions. An internet user had once shared a clip of Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying a similar line during one of his speeches and had asked Tejas director to give credit to the PM for the same. Responding to the tweet, Kangana had written, “Ha ha credit to definitely banta hai (he does deserve the credit).”

Tejas review

Tejas has received mixed to positive reviews from critics. An excerpt from the Hindustan Times review read: “Tejas is a film that soars when it comes to action but painfully crashes when it attempts to navigate complex geopolitics. Kangana Ranaut as the titular character is earnest as a lady airforce pilot, occasionally having to prove her place in the Air Force or in the society as a free thinking independent and a brave woman, flanked perfectly both literally and metaphorically by Anshul Chauhan, who compliments Tejas' courage and impulsiveness, with guile, patience and a bit of filmy drama.”
