He shared some of his earlier lighter moments and said that he and Joseph Mathias would always try to speak in Tulu most of the time they meet and even in the Church Pooja ceremony too they would crack in Tulu. Hence later a thought came to his mind ‘why not make a movie in Konkani-Tulu mix language, and the result is this movie. He said that both these regional languages needs to be saved and lifted at this point of time as people seldom care to promote. Hence a small effort is being made by him through this movie and requested all to support him in this cause. He added that his movie is packed with suspense, comedy, action, good music and brilliant story line while some of the Tulu Film stalwarts like Roopesh Shetty, Arvind Bolar, Bhojaraj Vamanjoor & Gopinath Bhat have acted along with the some of the famous actors of Konkani field.

Roshan then invited Chief Guest Walter Nandalike to speak on the occasion and the later started his speech and stated that a revolution in Konkani Film has started and that it is being inspired by the Tulu Film fever which started with ‘Oriyardu Oriye Asal’ film. There are so many Tulu films being released recently and so have Konkani Movies with the recent release of ‘Kazar’ & ‘Ek Aslyar Ek Na’ both by Frank Fernandes and ‘Noshibanchi Khel’ by Henry D’Silva which got released and good response, he added. He also said that Maxim is a not only a dedicated person but also a perfectionist and said that Daijiworld will support him to the fullest as the dubbing and post production part of the movie is being done in Daiji Studios which is the first of its kind done so far and that they are eager to see the outcome of their work. He also revealed that the hero of the movie Roopesh Shetty has dubbed his voice in Konkani himself though he is a non-Konkani speaker and which no one can make out with the outcome which has come out so perfect. Also since there are so many well-known Tulu artiste in this movie in important roles and that noted Konkani supporter singer actor Joseph Mathias is also there in the movie; one can surely say that the movie is going to be a hit.
Next was Sarvotham Shetty who spoke on the movie release and said that this is a good initiative by Maxim as he planned this movie in Konkani-Tulu mix language and targeting both Konkani and Tulu crowd.
He also shared that most of the people in this field of art are proceeding with mere blind faith where only few of their families support them. He added that most of them are really trying to support their mother tongue and language while very few from the community understand. He said that all Tulu and Konkani Community people will definitely support this movie and make it a hit.
