Neena Kulkarni said it was a privilege to play the lead role in Photo Prem and she is happy that the film will reach a wider audience with its release on Amazon Prime Video. “Photo Prem has such a nuanced and thoughtful storyline and it has been nothing short of a privilege to play a lead in this film.  The movie portrays one of the most innocent and purest emotions and I did everything in my capability to do justice with the character. The quintessential story of ‘Maee’ in Photo Prem is one that deserves to be showcased as widely as possible. It is a movie for everyone and I hope it will be showered with the same quantum of love with which we made it.”

Talking about his film, debutant director and co-writer Aditya Rathi said, “Photo Prem is an unusual story of a very usual scenario that everyone can relate to. It beautifully depicts the emotional and the most common human side of any person where they start thinking about how the world will remember them once they cease to exist. I am glad to collaborate with Amazon Prime Video which will enable us to reach out to audiences across the length and breadth of the country, beyond Marathi speaking viewers. Buoyant with the successful release of our film Picasso on Amazon Prime Video recently, we are excited to now premiere Photo Prem on the streaming service. Needless to say, Marathi cinema has rolled out some great content of late and I am certain that Photo Prem will be a great addition.”

While attending a funeral, Maee, a typical housewife realises that in situations like these people often look for a photo of the deceased that can be put up in his/her remembrance. She realises that being the photophobic that she is, she doesn’t have a good picture to be put up after her. This leads her to think that she might just be forgotten by the generations to come as without a picture they will not be able to relate to her. Worried she sets out on a quest to overcome her fear of the camera and get a good picture. But will she be able to get a picture that would define her? And will people be able to relate to it?
