Speaking at the occasion, Sidhu said “I have made quite a few videos and it is from there that the idea of making a short film struck me. I have tried to use that experience in making the film which hopefully people will appreciate. There have been hiccups while making the film and the mistakes that I have made will help me in making better films in the future”.

Despite being from a rock music background, Sidhu has used soft music for the film. “There is no rock music and the music I have used blends well with the film. There is one and a half song. I mention half song because it is used in the form of a jingle in the film. The other song is about the main theme of the film, which is alternative sexual orientations” said Sidhu.
