Director’s Statement Whenever we think of Bharat-Pakistan situation, something moves inside. But that movement inside, this time around, churned a new feeling out of me and it created a satire. I had handled satire in theatre before, but never in my two film old career! My experience in theatre helped a lot. The theatricality took its toll on duration, but it had to be like this only… short or… salty.
