Filmmaker Deepak Rauniyar says his role is to examine the society he grew up in (south-eastern Nepal), not to make movies that entertain. That said, the director recently told the Nepal Now podcast that his upcoming film he will try to deliver his social commentary wrapped up in the genre of a police thriller.

Rauniyar revealed more details of his upcoming project, which will be his third feature film, along with the story of enduring racism growing up in a part of Nepal where he looked different than most of the children and wasn’t fluent in the Nepali language.
