Speaking about the movie, Narayan said, “The story is inspired from a real life incident which happened to one of my friend in late 70s. I was touched by the incident because I had witnessed it. In order to give the film a touch of reality, the film was shot where the real incident happened.”

Apart from Pankaj, the rest of the cast comprises newcomers. “It was a different experience as everyone is a fresher with no background in films. Even the singers are newcomers, hence you will feel a freshness in all the songs,” he assured.
