‘Zameen Hamari Phir Bhi Paraye’ which is set in the backdrop of a Telangana farmer’s family in a village, is produced and directed by Syed Rafi on Jasmine Arts banner. Syed Rafi presented the DVD of ‘Zameen Hamari Phir Bhi Paraye’ and dedicated it to Sonia Gandhi as a gratitude to her on behalf of Telangana people, political parties along with revolutionary unions who struggled hard for Telangana, students, employs, cine media and social media friends for keeping up her word and giving Telangana by making Telangana peoples’ wish true by keeping in mind the Telangana peoples’ sacrifices, struggle and martyrdoms. He felicitated her with Shawl and presented a portrait of her and a memento with the lines "Zameen Hamai Phirbhi Paraye, a film depicting Telangana pathos dedicated to saviour of Telangana souls - Syed Rafi (Filmmaker)" in his own handwriting.
Syed Rafi, the filmmaker said, “The happiest thing is that when Ponnala, who came along with me and supported me, saying about my participation in Telangana revolution, Sonia said, “I know about him.” I was really stunned. She received me well. The way she is observing my presentation made me feel that she wholeheartedly wished me and accepted my gratitude. Till now I’ve not discussed about the film because first I want to dedicate it to Soniya garu and express my gratitude to her. It’s a wonderful feel that my dream came true. I’m thankful to Ponnala Lakshmayya for supporting me and Sayyad Shaik for drawing the portrait of Sonia Gandhi.
