While he was happy that a well-known name like Priyanka Chopra had come forward to support Assamese cinema, Barua said that ultimately a film is accepted based on the subject and issue one deals with, and how that is represented.

“Each and every social problem has a side of universality. Certain things are universal, and it can happen anywhere, so it is identified everywhere… In my films, the main graph is humanity… the cause of humanity, and that is same everywhere. So, I feel like earlier films also, this will also be accepted everywhere,” Barua had told IANS. (IANS)
