Kashyap, who has been working in the television industry since the past 23 years, makes his directorial debut with this film and talking
about the challenges that he faced while directing a Marathi film,Kashyap said,

“I believe that cinema has its own language and that one does not necessarily need any particular language skills to make good
cinema. Moreover, I have been staying in Maharashtra since the past many years and it was not like I was new to Marathi. Having said that, I did take the help of my actors when it came to certain Marathi words in the script, which are not used in daily conversations and got to learn a lot in the process. Apart from that, there was no major problem as such when it came to the language.”

Produced by Himanshu Kesari Patil and directed by Promod Kashyap under
the banner Saranay Entertainment, ‘Prime Time’, which is slated to
release on May 29, stars Sulekha Talwalkar, Milind Shintre, Kishore
Pradhan, Nisha Parulekar, Jayant Gadekar, Krutika Deo, Anurag Worlikar

and others.
