Quote from Director Nitin Kumar Gupta:
The Walk is a bittersweet comedy-drama inspired by the plight of migrant workers during the 2020 lockdown. It is a story about the courage and resilience of the human spirit. With Walk, I want to capture the pain, joy, and hope that comes with the journey of life, and to remind us all that when we stand together, no hardship is insurmountable.
Walk is such a story where we find laughter, love, affection between a grown man & a child, how it binds them together to be a family.
Quote from Rahul Roy:
The Walk is a film which is very close to my heart. It’s about raw human emotions. How Roshan’s pure intentions gave a family to a child who has lost everything.
My life has been nothing short of miracle that ways. I was Golu for Mahesh Bhatt Ji. I learnt from him that relations are by heart & by good deeds. My character Roshan has been inspired by him. The way he has taken me under his wings & nurtured me to give me an identity from Aashiqui, I owe everything to him. I wish a Roshan to every Gold of this world!!
