When I made the film, even my producer said that he does not want the money back from the film. He just wanted to educate the people about this. So when you come to watch the film, do not merely watch it like any other film. Please spread the message and ask others to come and watch it”.Dressed in a blue jeans and grey striped shirt, Priyam looked extremely smart.
