Director Statement

I have been toying with this idea, a thought - If there are two chairs, we choose one to sit, but in our mind we try both before we make the choice. In fact, as much as we live in reality, so do we live more than that in our imagination. When we are young, we have a wide range of options before us to choose our path of life. And at some point, we end up choosing one, thereby permanently shoving away the other choices. Erasing a dream is in a way similar to committing a murder. This thought was my first inspiration. I developed a plot and it shaped itself to become a thriller. As the story demanded a dream like landscape, I decided to shoot it in the snow clad mountains of Kashmir. The extreme climatic conditions prevalent there with continuous snowfall made it very difficult for us to shoot.
