Kaushik has told regarding his experience of making this film though he has faced financial constraints, obligations from some parts of the cine world specially Nandan who has denied to show the film and the cooperations from Tollywood (Bengali Film Industry) to complete such a effort which evolves around alternative sexuality. He also shares some funny moments during shooting where people at outdoor location Birbhum have addressed Rituporno as “Nabagata Sengupta” and whispered about bad luck of the director to take a male as female lead in absence of sufficient finance!!

The producer has remembered the days when he has agreed to produce the film only on request by Rituporno Ghosh , response to the film from different parts of the World ( the film has already been screened and awarded at major film festivals of the World including Berlin film festival ) and his stand towards not to release the film at Nandan by showing screeners beforehand.
