Speaking about the film, Rohatgi said in a statement, “At the heart of it, Sumo Didi is an inherent human story about resilience in the depths of despair and I hope it resonates with audiences across the world. I am grateful to our collaborating partners in Jio Studios, my producers at Fresh Lime Films, MA + TH and my incredible cast and crew for the opportunity and the support in bringing this incredible story to life and for us collectively accomplishing this momentous selection at Tokyo International Film Festival. What better way to celebrate this journey than being able to showcase our film in Japan – the birthplace of Sumo Wrestling.”
