Deep Bhattacharya who in real life is software professional says that he can identify with the role very well as he too is one who believes in the ideologies of Swami Ji and loves to lead a life that is devoid of the materialistic chase. Along with the lead actor’s thought process even his demeanor is such that he would be apt for the role of the great sage. Gargi Roy Choudhury who is to play the role of Maa Sharada feels that this will be a great challenge for her as the role would demand a very mature and somber treatment.

While speaking to the media, the director even revealed that during the shoot there had been many instances when he strongly felt the presence of Swamiji blessing him giving him the strength to move ahead.

However, miraculously though right when the shot was about to begin a strong wind started blowing and even stopped as soon as the shot was over.

The entire team of The Light is very hopeful that the movie will reach out to the audience and will bring to the fore glimpses from the life of Swami Vivekananda.
