She further adds, “In any small town where houses are closely stuck, everybody is a part of the family and knows exactly what's happening in whose house. So the sutradhar in our film is a neighbour who has been a witness to the Mishras interesting journey.” 

Juno Chopra, the debutant creative Producer also shares, “The narrator had to be someone who enriches the story with dollops of humour with his understanding of language, intonations, and expressions. Who better than Javed sir."
