He speaks about the film and how he connects with it. The film explores about the verbal abuse. Sujay recalls his childhood and schooldays. "The abuse was so common in my friends no matter they came from good family. It was in their culture and they didn't mind also," he said.
Tujhya Aaila revolves around a 12-year-old urban boy who got admitted in a rural school after his family moves to a village following his father’s transfer. Unknown with the rural cultur, the boy is surprised when he is exposed to the culture of verbal abuse prevalent among his fellow-students. The film is all about how he manages in that culture and what he faces?
