Project SUDDHA, for me, has predominantly been an exercise in creating something from nothing. When we first started thinking about producing the film ourselves, the question I posed myself was ‘Can I find creative solutions to what I do not have?’ The difference between answering this question and cribbing that I do not have a producer or a crane or a star, was the difference between making and not making the film. And I choose to make it.
