Director's Statement

It was a life time experience for me and my production unit to shoot this kind of a short film, at this time of Pandemic situation, for Covid-19. We have followed all the rules of social distancing and taken all kinds of precautions while doing the shoot. Was a very tough shoot to be done. The film tells us about a case of sixth sence. The character Sanjana watches a bad dream and finally gets up knowing that the same thing has happened to her girl friend.
