When asked Ali about it he said, “This issue of visa and immigrations for several has been there right from the beginning and has always been sort of simmering and it was a great angle to bring this issue in front of every individual and currently, time has just been so relatable and made this film even more connective to audiences which also actually has a fun element in the narrative. This movie is made from true events and the producer brought this idea to me and I totally loved it and that is when I just said yes to this film. I hope audiences connect to it and love to this one too and find it relevant.”
