This film is a salute to cancer survivors.

The act of the dots being placed near her eyebrow signifies warding away of negative energy. It is usually done when someone looks so beautiful that you want to keep evil eyes away from them.

The background song ‘Tu faulad hai, tu hai phool’ means ‘You are steel, you are a flower’, signifying the mental strength that women possess, in spite of being physically delicate.
