Vinod told Hindustan Times, “We did nothing.. we just fell in love with that little angel. Initiating adoption process. Long battle ahead.” He said he will speak about it once things are confirmed, “Honestly , don’t want to talk about it till she comes home. It’s a long process. Don’t want to jeopardise it,” he said.

Vinod spotted the baby for the first time in a viral video, which showed her lying alone on a garbage dump. He found out her location, Nagaur in Rajasthan, with the help of friends and social media.

Vinod has just announced his next film, 155 Hours. His last film Pihu showed a 2-year-old girl named Pihu left alone in a locked house after her mother dies. He had told HT in an interview, “There is a very strong in-line message for the parents in the film. The bottomline of the film is -- every child deserves a parent but not every parent deserves a child.”
