The narrative of the film transports you to the zenanas of the maharanis in India. Special eye for detailing can be seen in the film from old-world dhunas and rose petals, silver embossed mirrors and more. The Bikaner House in New Delhi played as the perfect location for the designer.

No doubt, that the old-world patterns, textiles and craft was highlighted in their collection reviving the spectacular weaves and embroideries that were lost over the years.
