Director (Pranab Aich): Been making documentaries on regular social issues. For last 5years I have been eyeing to create a good film in our Odia which tells the story of our culture and glory, when the producer took me to Nanda sirs village, I immediately said yes, We shot for an year esp. taking care of Nanda sirs sensitivities with the main vision of capturing his, free education work and his energy of a saint who lives with the family. He is the savior of our culture and tradition, an inspiration for everyone who loves giving, our future generations will learn from his simplicity which we have captured in the film.  We want the entire world to see his story and appeal the people of Odisha and India to watch and spread the trailer so much so that the gap of viewership between a documentary and a commercial fades away.

Producer (Dr. Abhay Pati): We wanted to do something for Padmashri Nanda Sir. The way he had dedicated his life selflessly for providing free education to his people for 4 generations, his story was worth sharing to the world, nothing can be a better gift than this. The documentary is made in odia, so that the pride of Odisha can be spread worldwide. We plan to release the film on OTT in other languages too.
