Priyanka calls documentary 'hard hitting'

She also added, "This project serves as a testament to the boundless love and unyielding determination of a devoted father for his cherished daughter. This hard hitting piece of art also really hits home on so many levels, but personally, I was born in the state of Jharkhand (where the survivor and her father are from), and as the daughter of a father that was my forever champion…I was moved to pieces. I cannot wait for audiences around the world to discover this moving story."
