Today we are going to talk about such a story and reality…about life " KARMA STRIKES " all about good deeds or bad deeds
Got the blessings for our movie "Karma Strikes" from Shirdi Sai Baba!!
Which is presented through a movie. One aspect of our life is our teacher from whom we learn a lot.
This teacher is not standing in front of us in any human form, as in the form of a man and a woman…This teacher is a teacher who lives with us invisibly from our birth…
and sees our every action and deed and with time we also realize what we did good and what was wrong, knowingly and unknowingly something wrong happened or happened to us.
If someone has been hurt by any of our actions, we are the cause of that person's sorrow and if we realize the matter. Let's admit that we have made a mistake and how can we correct it....or apologize for that.

Benny Dayal, Anurag Mishra, Sanah Moiduttya and Siddharth Salathia. “KARMA STRIKES” In the film, new faces of the film industry have been given a chance, yet they were extensively auditioned, selected for their acting excellence and each character has played their role perfectly. And most importantly, the cast also includes foreign actors and film crew. why I'm mentioning below about the crew and cast because this is not an easy job to hire a international expert crew member for a feature film so i want I want to try to explain how much struggles the film would have been made of and the best part is that the filmmaker didn't try to show you the famous face "Super Stars'' or renowned actress...but you have seen the reality in front of you with a normal way. It is...Emotions are needed not face to speak your words...

When I came to know this during my research when I was writing this blog, I became very emotional, got to know the difficulties they faced so I would like to share this with all of you that you know, making a film is like raising a newborn baby and raising your film like it mother and Father and family go through so many troubles behind this, they have to go through difficult times, you will be able to know better later… Read: Free Art Productions, which was set up as a production company in 2020 by Aafreen and Karthik, was to produce the film. With immense support from family and friends, he raised the necessary funds to start the film. When he ran out of money, he sold his house in Mumbai to complete the production of the film. The film was shot in difficult conditions during and after the second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally after facing all the difficulties, it was accomplished against all odds due to hard work, talent and self-confidence from a team of outsiders. And you are seeing the result of hard work and hard work, I would request every person that you all must watch this film, and give encouragement to the entire team of "KARKA STRIKES" so that we can continue to think more and such main facts.
But he could make a film.
