Satyaprakash is a die-hard environmentalist and is always thinking about how to conserve energy, and electricity and uses solar power and is known as Solar in the film. He goes to any extent for the environmental issues he believes in and is an interesting character.

We both have a theatre background and we gelled with each other and we understood each other very well and it was great fun to work with her as her character too is interesting and she knows martial arts and her character will certainly be loved by the audiences.

He is a very good and sorted director having made acclaimed films like ‘Harishchandrachi Factory’ and ‘Elizabeth Ekadashi’ and it was a great learning experience to work with him and his wife and writer Madhugandha Kulkarni.
Your debut film is produced by Zee Studios! How does it feel?
Yes. Their films are different and have very good content and they are marketed and distributed well and their chief Nikhil Sane has all the knowledge of making good films and marketing and distributing them in such a way that most of the audiences are drawn in the first week.

I have an interesting film called ‘TTMM – Tujha Tu Majha Mi’ coming up very soon.
