The director Anubhav Sinha said the media, what do we mean by society? I had neighbours of different languages and religions in Mumbai and while studying at Aligarh Muslim University. The issue of responsibility in intellectual practice is bound to come up in the context of mainstream cinema as we tagged Bengali, Tamil, Telegu, Malayalam all as regional. That is why Hindi films are still established as mainstream. Regarding the social message of the film he said, I do not make films for any social message but I do make films for my viewers to discuss. I make films on the topic so that the subject makes all to think about. Photography : Rajib Mukherjee.
