Similarly, Sanju Rai from Nepal, Devraj Rai from Hong Kong, Narhang Rai from the UK and Bhim Rai from USA are the executive producers of the film.

“I am back in directing after a long gap,” he announced at the programme. “I don't claim to make a terribly good film, but I will not make it bad. I am satisfied with the script.” The film will narrate a tale how development and change have impacted the relationship of a father and son, he told The Rising Nepal.
