Block 12 is based on the issue of how big powers manipulate the resources and people of the country. The film is a political, allegorical comedy. When asked about the difference she found in filmmaking in India and Greece, the 29-year-old says, "Every industry has its own ups and downs but people over there are much more disciplined. They start shoots on time. But the film industry in India is much richer than theirs." When asked why he chose Neetu, Tofaridez said, "My co-producers are in India and they suggested that I sign someone from India and then I selected Neetu."
