It is a very long process when comes to writing a story taking on the floor and then releasing it. This one is taking longer than a normal story. It became important for us to release a title and a glimpse of the character. So, while the new year was starting we decided to release it. Now will complete it throughout the year and on 21st December will release the film also.”
Talking about teaser Anand L Rai was asked if there is a reason behind the song used in teaser he said, “I don’t want to talk about it here and just end it. There is a very interesting backstory as to why we did it and I will give you more time very soon to talk and discuss about it.”
