We ended up loving this more as we work for many other directors' dreams. Amidst this, Mr Raghava Lawrence master was very kind to offer us to direct a film featuring him under his production and we happily accepted. We are forever indebted for his trust in us. But now, with a heavy heart, due to our prior stunt choreography commitments and schedules of those films, we are letting go of this wonderful opportunity.

We thank you dear Mr. Raghava Lawrence master for understanding us and our best wishes for the film's success. We are always a part of the film and we assure you our best for stunt choreography of the film as the action directors, Lawrence master".
