Then we began working with ICMR and NIV scientists to develop our own vaccine. Their story of struggle and sacrifice was inspiring, and while researching, we learned how these scientists fought a war waged against India not only by foreign agencies, but also by our own people. Nonetheless, we defeated superpowers by developing the quickest, cheapest, and safest vaccine. I felt this story needed to be told so that every Indian could be proud of their country." "This will be India's first pure science film about a bio-war we had no idea about," he added.
