During an interview with ETimes, Sudipto shared that he spent seven years carrying out this project and strongly believed in its potential success.

“It was always intended to be a story about three friends who happen to be women. That’s why the film deals exclusively with the subject of women being brainwashed. It was not a premeditated plan. Currently, a producer has offered me a project, as a follow-up to Kerala’s history about the radicalization of children,” he said.
