Director Statement

This was an unique experience for me personally for doing this Smartphone Short "VADOBA" as an Writer & Director, As it was for the first time, i took Smartphone for use to live my passion and life i.e., "Film Making", Doing this project with all the non-actors and making them perform was a fun
Everything was very limited right from budget to the accessories, Yet we were determined to do our best, And I think we have been successful in doing that
Thank You
