You can check out the complete note below, on Avika Gor’s post. Meanwhile, Manish Raisinghan opened up about the film, in an interview with Saas, Bahu Aur Betiyaan.
He said, “We shot it in 2013-2014, while shooting for Sasural Simar Ka. It took a long time. Whole day we shot for the show and if we got time in between the shots, we shot for the film. The interesting thing is both Avika and I saw the short film after it was made. We both watched it together and found out that it was very bad. We had to re-write, re-shoot, all of which took a long time."
While Avika and Manish haven’t acted in their short film, they will be seen together on the big screen. Manish Raisinghan said that he and Avika have a feature film together, but they are waiting for the theatres to open once again.
