We both smiled at each other because we both knew what a formidable task that would be. It was a village with no roads, no amenities, and no infrastructure. But his question stuck with me. Now, many years later I was able to do just that. It gives me immense pleasure to have made my directorial debut as a tribute to my father, Kaifi Azmi.”
