Sachin Kundalkar said that these are interesting times we are living in. Marathi films have always been superior with regards to Content and Emotions , but what was missing was the overall packaging .
These are the best times to come out with such films which will also appeal to the youth .
Atul Kulkarni said that this is a film about brother-sister of today’s age . Since this film has a brother , sister , father and a mother this is a family film. Everyone has a image other than what appears from outside . That image which is hidden in our self only comes out with a certain incidence or meeting somebody . This film talks about this image in our inner self. So this film will relate to the audiences and make them remember their past . I have also changed my look for this film .
Priya Bapat said that the emphasis is on transformation caused by a certain incident in the film .
Kundalkar added that films need not be cent percent practical , people see it as they are larger than life .in every relationship friendship comes first . What is needed is that films should give new energy to the audiences through relationships in the film .

FRESH is a foot tapping fun song in the film which is picturised on Priya Bapat. It’s a combination of rock, pop and jazz, and Shalmali has dimensiolised it with her unique husky tonality of voice.The other song is a soothing lullaby again picturised on Priya Bapat. It’s a soulful & lyrical melody and has a touch of melancholy. Two contrasting genres of the songs proves the versatility and the range of Shlamali has, and also the control she has on her craft.
