"The story is inspired from the thousand of cricketers ,who sees a dream for playing for India or for their respected states but cannot fulfill the dream because of some uncertain reasons," he added further.

Diptolok who is also a cricketer, gave the audition for the role just to try something new in the lockdown. And after going through so much battels in his cricketing life, the story of the movie got attached with him immediately.

"Everyone has their own fight but the ultimate goal is the same for every budding cricketer. The zeal, the passion, dedication and the determination is same for all of us. Just that, we fight differently. That is why I feel The Dream is a movie that will resonate with every budding cricketer in Bengal," Diptolok Chatterjee answered when he was asked if his character "Anik" is inspired from his personal life.
