While Vidya is also acting in the film, Natkhat marks her debut as a producer. Speaking about Natkhat’s world premiere on such a prestigious platform, Vidya said, “Due to this unimaginable and mind-numbing COVID-19 crisis, while film festivals across the globe have been cancelled, digital festivals such as We Are One come as a hope for viewers and filmmakers. I am really happy and excited to showcase our film on this platform. Natkhat is a very special film because it addresses something that is extremely pertinent in these times while also delivering a strong message.”
Echoing Vidya’s sentiments, the film’s co-producer Ronnie Screwvala said, “It’s initiatives like We Are One and platforms like Tribeca Enterprises that are truly making a difference by bringing people together even during these trying times. The donations from the festival will go to the World Health Organization and I am happy that our film is going to be screened on such a platform. It is an honour for us.”
