Talking about the film, director Jayant Gilatar added “Chalk N Duster is a film that pays respect to the most undervalued profession – Teaching, which ironically is the most important profession for the growth of every individual, leave alone the Nation! I have tried to highlight the joys as well as the pitfalls of being in this profession, and I believe eventually, every human being imparts and receives knowledge in some form or another, so everyone eventually is student or a teacher!”
