Regarding the context Methila said, "Rohingya is a different kind of Bollywood film. I played the role of Hussein Ara, a Rohingya girl. The Rohingyas who infiltrated Bangladesh are not subservient here. There is talk of their plight.” ‘I have learned a lot while working in this film.  The work experience is undoubtedly good.  After working here, I decided to act’, she further added.

Regarding actress performance director Haider Khan said, ‘Methila is really hard working. She already took a challenge for herself in her debut film. She will be seen speaking two languages Arakanese and Hindi in the film that she is not used to with. It is quite tough for one to adopt something new but she has managed that very well. I am very much optimistic about the film; hopefully the viewers will like it’.

Alongside directing, Haider Khan has also written the screenplay and dialogues of the production. He has worked as an assistant director for superhits such as ‘Commando’ and 'Dangal’ and also a skilled photographer.
