Soumyajit is a force to reckon with and I am so happy I could be part of his debut film. This film has been made with immense love and undeniable passion… and I hope it’s able to reach as many people as possible. I play Sri… Sri is love.

I love the spirit of the film and the filmmakers. I was excited about it since I read the script and when it all came together, it was beautiful. I love my character Nargis, she’s a lot like me. I was a little nervous about the poetry bit though (sic).”
