When we took the responsibility of training 10 national level para athletes, on behalf of Paralympic Committee of India, for Paralympic Games, we were impressed with performance of physically challenged sportspersons. ‘Shirdi Saibaba Foundation’, powered by “Johnson Controls Hitachi” had flagged off the ‘Radiant in Quest of Gold’. As such we thought of making a film on challenging life of physically challenged sportspersons. Vikas Kapoor worked for fairly long time and now the film is being shot. The viewers are certain to like ‘Chal Jeet Le Jahan’.”

Now a day’s it’s a trade of reality shows. There cannot be anything more real than the real disabled cricketers performing in this film. The lyrics/music of this film is quite interesting.
