Talking about his film, Thumrugoti, said : "It's a movie on severe academic pressure on children, and it has been told in an entertaining manner."

"The movie involves comedy juxtaposed with drama," he added.

This is the first film that Thumrugoti has shot in India. It won the audience award at Stuttgart's Bollywood and Beyond, New Jersey's South Asian Festival and the Special Recognition Award at Houston's inaugural Indian Film Festival.
