The whole team is brimming with energy as we are pushing our limits to match the standards from script to screen solely by Indian talent and it definitely is a new kind of experience for all the artists and technicians involved to work for a film in the theatrical format which involves hi-end technical aspects of animation filmmaking”

About choosing Lava-Kusa as the subject for the movie, Praveen said “Lava Kusa is a mythological subject and purely an Indian content, also a wonderful epic, wherein there is a lot of scope for animation to interest the target audience (children). Also, we are taking care to give a different look and not to loose the traditional values of the great story.”
