Sharán has lived in Costa Rica for more than a decade, and much of that time has been dedicated to the distribution and production of international cinema in Panama, Costa Rica and Mexico, hence his interest in producing Indian cinema in the region.

Sharan explained that such ambitious film "megaprojects" not only impact the economy of a country, but also opens doors to new actors, and highly capable technical staff who cannot find employment options due to lack of opportunities

“…this film megaproject will have a great impact, where the experience and talents of India and Panama will be combined, creating a great opportunity for the development of this industry in the region”, explained the filmmaker who expects government support, in areas such as facilitating income procedures when it is necessary to hire foreign personnel as filming progresses.
