When I heard her story, I found her journey to be quite intriguing which led me to research about it further. What I stumbled upon was quite an eye-opener. Apparently, there are many who face the same issue and are seemingly trapped after travelling to such places in pursuit of lucrative jobs. My directorial debut, Akelli is an attempt at creating awareness about the horrors of such attempts made by people trying to pursue better livelihood job opportunities.’
