Produced by Romila Saraf Bhat and Rahul Bhat of New Jersey-based Red Bison Productions, known for their work on “Bhaag Bawre Aandhi Aayi,” “Sach is Life” is primed to commence principal photography in April 2024. The film’s shooting locations span Kashmir, New Delhi, New Orleans, New Jersey, and New York.
