“Doing a film in Marathi, and a socio-comedy genre has always been on my wishlist. Marathi humour cannot be compared. I just love the language. Being born in Mumbai, speaking Marathi has never been a problem because if Hindi is my mother tongue, Marathi is my father tongue,” said the actor.
Helmed by Sameer Patil, the film is produced by Uttung Thakur and focuses on real-life problems of the underprivileged class in rural areas. Satire has been used to tackle the issue.
Thakur is known for producing slice-of-life genre films like Balak-Palak and Yellow.
