“Many years ago, my father Kaifi Azmi had asked me, ‘Baba, is it possible for you to shoot a film in Mijwan?’ We both smiled at each other because we both knew what a formidable task that would be. A village with no roads, no amenities, no infrastructure. But his question stuck with me. Now, many years later, I was able to do just that. It gives me immense pleasure to have made my directorial debut as a tribute to my father Kaifi Azmi,” said Baba Azmi while paying tributes to his famous father Kaifi Azmi.
