Kumar, has been producing performs and musicals about British South Asian communities for over 20 years in his function as Artistic Director and founding father of Rifco Theatre Company.

He mentioned: “It isn’t typically British South Asian life is authentically seen via our lens. I wished to painting up to date experiences that provide a substitute for the stereotypical representations about our household life, that we are sometimes burdened by. 

“There are not any white saviours, and we’re simply as unusual and dysfunctional as everybody else. We want extra tales like this that actually mirror and symbolize our communities, in order that we really feel we can also participate.”

Rameet Rauli, mentioned: “What actually appealed to me when studying this script was how refreshing it was. Simmy was no damsel in misery ready to be rescued. 

“She was robust, feisty and her personal hero, who finds her personal ft and paves her personal approach. Her journey was very attention-grabbing – going from a younger woman whose choices are at all times made for her by everybody else to slowly studying to face her floor and make her personal choices about her life, she realises that it’s okay to be unbiased and free!”

Viraj Juneja mentioned: “Seeing our tradition so authentically represented on display screen with out having to claw on to the stereotypes of outdated is what drew to me to this undertaking, to not point out attending to play a romantic lead, because it’s not one thing I often audition for!

“Harry is a lot greater than that although – he’s a younger man who feels alone on this world and struggles together with his psychological well being. Exploring that aspect of the character challenged me as an actor, but it surely was one which I relished.” 

The UK tour is supported by the British Film Institute, and funds from the National Lottery. It follows a profitable run on the pageant circuit, having premiered on the London Indian Film Festival and received the viewers selection award for the Best Narrative Feature on the Tasveer South Asian Film Festival final yr.
