Talking about working with Mr Majidi and Namah Pictures through this past year, Sujay Kutty of Zee Studios says, “The film brings together cultural and language variations of all kinds with Mr Majidi’s Iranian roots to our leading lady Malavika Mohannan’s Malayalam origin and ofcourse to Gautam Ghose’s Bengali beginnings to name a few. It’s been one big melting pot all bound by Mr Majidi’s vision. We were glad to be able to align with his unique expedition along with the team at Namah Pictures making sure that we are all part of a movement of sorts to further our participation in the global cinematic landscape”
Sharing her experience producer Shareen Mantri Kedia of Namah Pictures says, “It’s incredible to see how Mr Majidi has captured the Indian flavor and sentiments so beautifully. He personifies the belief that stories can’t be bound by the limitation of language. An honest emotion and a heartfelt expression in its narration will find it’s way into the hearts of audiences no matter where they come from.”
