I met Sujoy Nag, who was the brother of the acclaimed filmmaker Sanjoy Nag. We got to talking and discovered we had a lot of common friends from Bangladesh. I remember I had told him I wanted to work here, and shared some of my work. We talked about directors who were doing good work in Bengali cinema, and he told me about Pradipta. A few weeks later I met Pradipto da at the Bangladesh film festival, and he briefly narrated to me the script of the film."
