Saiyami took to Twitter to share the still, along with a touching message about the film and its journey.
She stated, “A collaboration with some of the kindest people I’ve ever encountered. This allowed me to participate in a sport that I enjoy. That allowed me to perform one of the most difficult parts I’ve ever played, both emotionally and physically. It’s almost too wonderful to be true. And I intend to play even more in the future. Ghoomer.”
A project with some of the nicest people I’ve met. That let me play a sport that I love. That let me play one of the most challenging roles I’ve played thus far; both emotionally & physically. It feels too good to be true. And I hope to continue playing even more. Ghoomer ❤️ pic.twitter.com/gzoUeskgDf
