Producer Sandeep Singh added that the film is based on a true life incident, one that has left a deep impact on people.
“This film is based on a true life incident. One that has left a deep impact on people and we wanted to achieve the same with the first look of Manoj’s character. The film is turning out wonderfully and we really hope that with this look, audiences can see what we’ve been seeing. This is just one of the many aspects of the film and we are eager to give the audience more glimpses into our film gradually.”
