I am really excited as it is a thriller series and I have never been a part of such a show before. Whenever we sit for a script reading at every point the story is thrilling and intriguing. Honestly, I am nervous but that is normal I guess. I wanted to try something new and explore another genre. When Mamta ma’am (Patnaik) briefed me about the show I really felt that I should take it up. The narration of the story was amazing. Audiences will get to see something unexpected which will make the show more successful.
