When asked why he thought of doing a play before the film’s release, he said, “I am a student of Cinema and I am making cinema but I am somebody who likes to stick to the roots. And cinema is something that evolved from a play and that’s the reason I thought about doing the play. And on the other hand, I am talking to my audience through the cinema. But in the play, I get the chance to talk to them live and give the message first hand from me.”
Talking further about his movie Yuvraj said, “‘ISIS – Enemies of Humanity’, the film has the power to end extremism and radicalization, and denounce terrorism and is being released with the same motive.”
“I can assure you thins film will end the doctrine of terrorism because one- we will be exposing the violent terrorist ideology that people fall for, on the internet and when they become part of the camp. And second, we are giving a solution for the ideology; we are telling how to counter it. And that solution is ideally available in religious books itself.”
“It isn’t just about religious books and what they teach us. It is about humanity. Just knowing each other, loving each other, and trying to be a part of our globalized society.” said filmmaker Yuvraj during a media interaction.”
