Co-produced by Paprika Media and Mayasabha Production, the Dadasaheb Phalke biopic is the directorial debut of Mumbai-based theatre actor-director Paresh Mokashi.

Mokashi's low-budget period film was completed in January. It has bagged a series of international awards and honours.
This is the second Marathi film after "Shwaas" to be nominated by India for an Oscar in five years. "Shwaas" was Sandeep Sawant's directorial debut.
