The revolutionary digital social platform Baba Play, which honors the ideology of Baba Saheb Bhim Rao Ambedkar is all set to launch the upcoming thriller film Quota starring Anirudh Dave.

Quota is a story of a first-year Dalit student who faces severe discrimination due to his caste. He faces tremendous physical abuse but the system dominated by casteist mentality further pushes him to an edge. His actions lead to an uprising among Dalit students who fight for justice. The film is a presentation of the writer, producer, and director Sanjiv Jaiswal. Renowned for his films like Fareb, Anwar and Shudra - The Rising. Millions, Jaiswal envisions that his social media and entertainment platform Baba Play will become a platform that will take the Ambedkarite thoughts to the world.
The Writer-Director, Sanjiv Jaiswal says that “Now the country has its very own social media platform dedicated to Ambedkarites. This will be the instrument of massive change and films like Quota are pivotal to this change. We aim to offer entertainment with meaning and purpose and to spread Baba Saheb's ideas across the nation.”
Lead actor Anirudh Dave who plays Dalit student Saurabh Rawat, the victim of casteism, is thrilled to take a meaningful story to the audience through the Baba Play platform. He says, “It is an honor to be chosen as the face of a story so crucial. We need to talk about these problems that divide our nation and ultimately become our weakness. I am excited to be featured on India’s one and only app that represents the voice of the Dalit community.”
Garima Kapoor who will be debuting as the female lead plays the role of a Dalit medical student who is also Asia's fastest rider. Ecstatic about her debut she says, “I am absolutely thrilled to be a leading actor in a story that is socially hard-hitting. The film truly depicts the casteism that is wrecking our society from within. The temple of knowledge is also not a safe haven for students today, and this has to change. I am glad that I will be able to voice such an important tale through my work.”
