About Celina's involvement in the project, Celina said in a statement to a leading news agency, "I am extremely happy to be a part of Ram Kamal's film 'Sea son's Greetings', because I have always considered him as a creative person and when he narrated me this story in Dubai, I had goosebumps. I knew that this film will be worth my time, as post marriage and motherhood I was looking for a subject that would excite me as a performer. Considering the fact that I have been associated with LGTBQIA movement since past 18 years, and Rituda (Rituparno Ghosh) being an inspiration for all of us, I feel that finally I will be acting in a film that deals with this issue."

Celina who is married to hotelier Peter Haag and is the mother of three children keeps travelling between Dubai and Mumbai for her professional commitments.

"I will be shooting in Kolkata for the first time, and that is something which I am really looking forward to," she added.

Bankrolled by Assorted Motion Pictures and SS1 Entertainment, the shooting of the film is held in Kolkata. Commenting about the film, the director said, "I know Celina as a friend and have interacted with her at various occasions. She is well read, and values human emotions. I was looking for someone who could relate to this script, and after the narration I could see a teary-eyed Celina, who immediately came on board."
