Talking about the film, director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury says, “Designed as an investigative drama, at its core the film explores themes like commitment, responsibility, holding hands and making our world beautiful and compassionate.

We are pleased to partner with Zee Studios in bringing this wonderful story to audiences the world over. With Aniruddha helming the direction, Yami headlining an interesting ensemble of actors, and sharp writing by Shyamal Sengupta and Ritesh Shah, this surely will be a thrilling journey.”
