He added, “Tumbbad used 50 lanterns and lamps for multiple scenes to maintain the authenticity of the historical film, and it waited for the rainy season to arrive to actually shoot in real rain – so nothing wrong was part of it of which the process. This time it took Pooja and Neil nearly five years to complete their research and put together a filmography that is subtle, easy to interpret, and thought-provoking – India’s first sci-fi comedy thriller, Ok Computer. “
