Mumbai, Sept 23 (ANI): 'Tum Mile', a forthcoming film on the 2005 Mumbai floods, is all set to recall the horror of the calamity and the devastation caused by it.

Set against the backdrop of the fateful day on July 26, the film delves into the happenings of that day and recreates them.

The film revolves around the story of two persons who part ways and meet after six years in a flight back to Mumbai. How they get sucked into the catastrophe and are forced to stick together during the floods, forms the storyline of the film.

"The idea was to personalise what happened in the floods. It is not a story on floods. It is a story on the people who were stuck in the floods. So I've chosen a couple and showed what happened on that day and night," said Kunal Deshmukh, director.

The film was a traumatic experience to shoot as most of the people involved in the film were in some way or other affected by the floods.

"I was also stuck in the floods. I was on SB road, so all the memories came back to me. Of course, what all incidents that we are showing in the film, I was never in such life threatening situations, but I've heard a lot of stories. It is a traumatic film to shoot and relive," said Soha Ali Khan, one of the lead actors of the film. (ANI)
