Comments the producer Amrit Das, “I have always had passion for media and this what has brought me to film making. I have already produced a number of productions for Television in US and Indian market. My love for my own country has brought me back and recent surge of Bollywood industry in the world market fascinated me. I have already made Bengali films but Will To Live is our first Bollywood film. As a global entrepreneur I believe that one day Bollywood industry will take over Hollywood and India will dominate the world entertainment business.”
