Director’s Statement

I grew up with drought, and I wanted to make a film related to my background. When I visited Aagaswadi, I was shocked to see how the few elders living there battle against the drought, unemployment, and more issues. Then I met Bhimrao to portray the struggles of the people in Aagaswadi.
