We have obtained the necessary permission from the PMO to use his voice recordings from Maan Ki Baat, and clips of his inspirational speeches and videos." Starring Sunny Pawar of Lion fame in the central role and Suniel Shetty in a cameo, the film highlights the importance of education of the girl child.

The producer adds that the Prime Minister's voice takes the narrative ahead as he is an inspiration for the protagonists. " ABC is about a brother whose dream is to educate his sister. Whenever the children face challenges, Modiji's voice serves as the guiding light," he says, adding that the team plans to show the film to Modi once it is complete.
Shetty, who was the first actor to come on board for the project, says, " I did the film because I strongly believe in Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao." The film will release in 14 languages, including Marathi, Tamil, Telugu and Gujarati. " If we don't dub the film in multiple languages, it won't reach the interiors. I wanted the message to spread far and wide."
