about the film, lead actor, Manjari Fadnnis said,

“It’s an
honour to be a part of such a prestigious project and something that is so
pertinent to the times that we are living in. The recent news of Delhi smog has
been heartbreaking and that is when I felt glad that in the least, I could add
my voice to something that every human being should be concerned about. On the
creative front, working with a talented director like Nila has been a learning
experience in itself. Protiqe, my executive & creative producer in India
has raised the bar of professionalism. As an actor playing an intense character
like Megha has been genuinely fulfilling. “

Set in
Delhi, Megha’s Divorce aims to raise awareness on environment and climate
change through a compelling narrative.

It is a
story of Megha and Akaash who are going through a dwindling marriage due to air
pollution. The poignant story brings alive the fact that degradation of air
quality and other resources has and is affecting daily life, economy, human
emotions and even relationships. The terms “climate change” and “air pollution”
used to be the lingo of scientists, environmentalists or policy makers, now
they have become part of every conversation among common people.

The film is
slated to travel in atleast 20 prestigious festivals all over the world along
