Eternally grateful to all those people who are bringing my dream, the story so close to my heart to life. It’s too good to be true but I guess ‘winter always turns to spring’. This film has seen me through various states and stages of life but all that I have learned from my practice, my mother, and my partner is to never give up. And I was supported with like minded people who were there through and through with me on this journey, thank you @tanuj.garg @atulkasbekar @ellipsisentertainment for being at it, and thank you @applausesocial @sameern for making this palpable!"
