According to Tanzila Khan, when other production houses refused to work on their script, they started working on it themselves and are grateful to all those who have worked with them for free.

"People born with physical problems or disabilities are usually given opportunities on a compassionate basis, and when given such opportunities, they are made to feel that they have compassion," said Tanzila Khan.
Instead of giving them the opportunity to sympathize with them or show them mercy, they should give them the opportunities they deserve, according to Tanzila Khan.
