Being able to contribute to this legacy is incredibly amazing. In order to understand the many dimensions of my character and learn her reactions to Madhav Mishra, I constructed a backstory. By the time I was on set, I had read the script approximately about 150 times. I made it a discipline to read the screenplay every evening between 6 and 8 for about 20 to 25 days. Pankaj Tripathi is one of the most charming co-stars I have ever had, and this is my second time working with him. He is a living masterclass on sets”.
