Waah Zindagi is a journey of a destitute farmer’s son struggling hard to become an entrepreneur to win his childhood sweetheart. His dreams seem to crash with Chinese products dumped in India. However, he decides to fight back and ends up with a Make In India initiative, the official synopsis read.

Whereas, Turtle is inspired by the real story of Ramkaran Choudhary (Bagod) from village Dehlod, Rajasthan.  The movie also received the National Film Award for Best Rajasthani Film at the 66th National Film Awards.

Featuring Mishra as the central character, Turtle highlights the issue of the world water crisis. It is a metaphorical depiction of the turtle, wherein a drought-struck village of Rajasthan, Choudhary (Mishra), is churning the parched, sun-baked earth, to extract water and the common folk indulged in a tug of war, rotating on his shell, desperate to quench their thirst. Will he find success with his water mission or will the villagers make him fail in his attempt forms the plotline of the movie.

I am hopeful that people will take away something after watching these films and that they love the way we have presented them,” the 58-year-old actor said.
