Talking about the premise of the film, the story revolves around an NRI single mother’s emotional journey through the heartland of India in search of the anonymous donor who fathered her son.
Lara confirmed the news stating, “We at Bheegi Basanti Entertainment have been on the lookout for another story that had the same humour and emotional connect that Chalo Dilli had and have finally found that with a script that National Award winning director Sushil Rajpal has brought us. It is liberating and refreshing to pursue great stories and bring them alive on celluloid through challenging and lovable characters and most importantly to make people laugh and cry at the same time.”
