Mohen : It will be a Drama/War/History. Any other foreign crew apart from Yu?
Mohen: Yes of course. If the niece is a Japanese, the uncle too has to be Japanese right (laughs). Reasons for choosing Yu as lead actor, why not to any other Manipuri actors?
Mohen: Well, we have Abenao playing the Manipuri lady who will pair Junichi Kajioka. About choosing Yu, I wanted the project to be perfect. Are they going to deliver their own dialogues?
Mohen: Yes, yes. The Manipuri dialogues too will be delivered by them. Where will the film be shot and who will do the Costume Designing?
Mohen: Costume will be design by an American based Japanese. The film will be shot at Manipur, Bangkok and Japan. The war scenes will be shot at Bangkok. The Manipur scenes will be shot at Kamray Ching, and Mongjam. When will you start shooting?
Mohen: We will start shooting by the beginning of April. Will there be any songs in the movie?
