“I am very grateful to above industry friends for graciously agreeing to be part of the project. Knowing how talented they are, I just messaged their dialogues, which they had to say speak looking left. I loved what they made and sent. I just requested a couple of them to up the tempo.”
Indeed, a laudable effort.

I had stopped for a bit when I bounced this fresh idea with Jio Studios and Jio Cinema they greenlighted in quick time. The primary aim is to spread awareness to stay at home the wedding gets canned) but in an entertaining way. As creative artists, it is our responsibility to bring a smile to our front line health workers.”
