Winner of the Silver Ace Award at the Las Vegas International Film Festival for his movie Life of Lemon, American filmmaker Randy Kent was scheduled to direct this Kannada film, when he ran into some issues with his visa. But that didn't deter him from going ahead with the project, reports the Huffington Post.

Kent had initially agreed to direct the film for his friend Mateen Hussain, who recently returned to India from the US. So, even after the visa issue, Hussain was keen on Kent directing his film and hence suggested that they try Skype, reports The Hindu.

Kent agreed, and given the film's low budget, this solved another problem of keeping the costs low, reports the Quint.

The film is a romance that explores the obsessive 'ex' syndrome, when after a break-up, one of the former couple finds it hard to move on.

“Randy, who is an editor, will advise the team with post-production as well,” Hussain said in an interview with the New Indian Express. And after a theatrical release ‘like any other Kannada film’ early next year, they hope to take it to festivals across the globe.
