The best things happen to me when I don’t plan them’ Kanica

An ecstatic Kanica shares, ‘The best things happen to me when I don’t plan them. This is one such thing. This film was made in 2018 & categorically for the purpose of sending it to various film festivals. We did bring home a couple of awards too and it was very gratifying but I hadn’t really thought that one day, it would premier on a digital platform.’
This show will finally help me give me recognition in our industry as a producer.
‘ I am very excited as it’s my maiden venture as a writer & producer. I feel like I’ve given wings to my career & I’ve branched out and ready to take risks in life. I have made this film with a lot of love, with no commercial aspect in my mind at the time. I think this is the universe’s way of giving love back to me. This show will finally help me give me recognition in our industry as a producer.’
