Says actor Ninad Kamat, "It was super fun shooting for the film. In between emotional tearing up, we were all laughing our guts out over some crazy jokes that someone on the sets cracked. The role and character sounded exciting. Of course, digital entertainment is the in-thing today! Anything that is quick, short and entertaining in the short film category is the future."

Actor Ritu Shivpuri says, "I don't know if I can even call it work since it felt so easy and was so much fun. Kailash Gandhi (the director) is one of my closest friends. He is an extremely talented individual and I've been aware about his passion for direction so being able to a part of this film is amazing for me. It's a lovely short but insightful story about how life plays out."
