How does it help to have the premiere of such a film at IFFI?
We are looking forward to showing the film to more like-minded people and critics at the festival. The panel at IFFI liked the film. I have been getting messages from the jury members. It is purely on the basis of the film. The film’s premiere at IFFI is a red-carpet event.
What do you think of Alizeh as an actor?
She is fantastic. She has chosen a role which was very performance-oriented. Many others are also debuting with this film. Alizeh has given all the time for pre-production and done all the hard work. I made her do workshops for months. She is very secured as an actor.
