I agreed almost immediately to be a part of Team Gulmohar – after the moving narration of this heartwarming and beautifully written story / script. It is a very layered and absorbing family drama. And I am sure many will enjoy watching it together with their loved ones in the comfort of their home. “
Manoj Bajpayee also talked about the project saying, “For me, there were many reasons to sign the film, firstly the narrative of the film was extremely candid and relatable. Secondly, sharing screen space with Sharmila ji was such an honor and above all, Rahul always came across as an intelligent talent and a man of integrity! What more could I ask for? I hope that the audience too will love it as much as I am loving being a part of it.
