He said, "It will be a Marathi film that is subtitled in English. The story that I want to tell the world is about Alzheimer's and dementia. It's a story, which I have written, close to my heart. I don't know whether I can figure it as a commercial, art, massy or classy film... I don't know those terms. I am hoping that I will be able to create the magic that people expect out of me."
