The film speaks a language of its own and is very Indian at heart, but despite that says something that will be relevant internationally. The film has got a lot to do with our culture and history and it's been an overwhelming journey to be a part of such a story which is so deeply rooted in our sanatan dharma."

Earlier, Vardhan's film 'Gulab' had its world premiere at the Chicago South Asian Film Festival.
Ecstatic about the achievement, Vardhan shared, "My feature film titled 'Gulab' had its world premiere at the very prestigious Chicago South Asian Film Festival. I could not attend the premiere as I am currently shooting in Mumbai for another film. However, I have heard from the team and my friends from the American media that the film is being received very well by the audiences and even received a standing ovation at the screening."
The actor went on to express his excitement, saying, "I honestly cannot wait for the film to travel internationally across other prestigious film festivals and then be available on a streaming platform for global audience viewing as soon as possible."
