It deals with heart wrenching subject but definitely, I feel tomorrow to make film on that then I will definitely make it but it has to be a big canvas film. It has to have that kind of infrastructure to it. I heard four stories of these soldiers and each of them is beautiful so I would love to make film based on one of those stories”
