Guneet Monga and her production house Sikhya Entertainment, have signed Umesh Bist, director of ‘Pagglait’, for the second time.
Guneet Monga says, “Umesh is a prolific storyteller who has a deep and delicate understanding of human emotions, which is his USP. That’s why the moving and extraordinary story of Pagglait touched the hearts of so many people. This is Sikhya’s second collaboration with Umesh Bist”.
