Love for one’s mother tongue and keeping up with the Joneses theme for this one, albeit with a Punjabi tadka! Actors Neeru Bajwa and Tarsem Jassar, director Ksshitij Chaudhary, writer Naresh Kathooria and Rrupali Gupta make one happy team as they got together to promote the film due to release on February 1. Love for the mother tongue and staying rooted to tradition are the overall themes explored in the movie. Great package Leading actress of Pollywood Neeru Bajwa came on board just not because the script was wonderful, but the whole package — writer, director, producer and Tarsem Jassar with whom she wanted to work with post Rabb Da Radio – everything fitted the bill. This producer, director is currently looking for a script, “I really love to boss around, so definitely direction is on my mind,” says the lady in all black.
