The principal photography is scheduled for 2-3 months, commencing on October 2019 and expected to completed during the summer of 2020. The filming will take place across various locations within UK and Nepal.
The ideal budget for the project is estimated around £25,000. However, we aim to raise minimum of £10,000 via crowd funding and we will provide exclusive event invitations related to the project, opportunities to meet cast and crew, behind the scenes and exclusive newsletters to respective contributors. Also, entire cast and crew are working on voluntary basis so all the profit is to be donated to Kulbir Thapa’s retirement home run by Gurkha Welfare Trust in his honor.
