Hello Fenil Ji, first of all thanks for your valuable time, please tell us when and how did this association take place?

I might want to first say that I am a major fanatic of films alongside comic books. I observe a wide range of films including universal motion pictures and Indian territorial dialect motion pictures with sub titles. As I was hunting down some digital heist and specialized thrillers in Indian motion pictures , I discovered TASKARA. It was under generation around then and the teaser has been discharged which pulled in my consideration. I contacted the essayist/performing artist of the motion picture who has additionally composed and facilitated television shows before this. Fortuitously he was a major comic film fan as well. Subsequently, began our affiliation.
