While sharing her happiness about the huge publicity in Paris actress of the film Tillotama Shome, says, ”Seeing our film posters all across France feels like time travel of a certain kind. Growing up in India, I travelled from one place to the next as Dad was in the Air Force. And yet traveling the world was an elusive but sexy dream. Thanks to monsoon wedding I sat on a plane for the first time. I saw the world, I gulped and I inhaled it in deep, hungry breaths. Films, something I am afflicted by, gifts you the super power of being in many places at once. This unexpected turn of events, of seeing our film plastered across France is high romance, the thrill of romancing stangers. I hope the french travel a little bit with our characters in Sir, whilst a part of me travels to them. With love from India.”
