The film is inspired by true events and will show how few incidents change a man’s opinion and perspective on certain things.
Talking about the film, Karan Butani told Mumbai Mirror, “It’s a real-life story and the title Kwatha comes from a place in Manipur, one of the villages on the border of India and Mynamar. It’s a story about an army officer and the relationship that he shares with this village.”
Karan met Aayush while writing the film and believes he is a perfect for the role. “We clicked in the first meeting itself. Very few films have been made on the North East and it’s time that the rest of India and world see how beautiful it is and the stories it has to tell,” Butani told the daily.
“Kwatha” is produced by Sunil Jain and Aditya Joshi of Cult Entertainment and directed by Karan Lalit Butani.
The film is likely to go on floors in September and is scheduled to release in 2020.
