"If we genuinely want to save the environment, we need to do this right away...Let us set an example," he added.
Talking about his love for nature, Sircar said: "My favourite past time is watching trees and watching nature is my meditation."
Sircar, known for films like "Vicky Donor", "Madras Cafe" and "Piku", picked up a story which celebrates love, nature and the autumn season to narrate through his next directorial "October".
