Girish Wankhede says, "I'm a huge fan of Sahir Sahab and getting me associated with something like this is a big high. Short films' space is dynamic and displaying this to the world will set its course. We are quite ambitious and intend to travel the globe with this heartwarming film. Chandrakant Singh has done an incredible job by justifying this romantic tribute and I look forward to the reactions in Cannes."
