Sunil Saharabudhe a talented Indian Sign Language expert was hired to train the actors in the film.
The theme of the film is that love knows no language. The strong emotional connection between the characters makes up for the absence of dialogue in the film. ISH News interviewed talented actors such as Abhijeet Khandkekar, Nadita Patkar, Deepak Dobriyal, Directed Ashok Subhedar as well the talented child artist Aaryan Menghji.
During the interviews the passion and sincerity of the actors to learn and do justice to Indian Sign Language shone through. They worked very hard with Sunil to master the nuances of Deaf culture.
