Bohot saari cheeze Hui thi tab (The leap that was happening on the show, there were talks about it from two, three months. At first, the makers thought that I would play Imlie.

Humhe pehle realise nahi hua tha par, jaise jaise humhe pata chala ki din abhi aakhri chal rahe hai, din paas aane waale hai jiske baad hum yahape nahi aane waale hai. Uske baad woh taqleef badti jaa rahi thi. Kyunki humhari team badal chuki thi. Actors jaa chuke the (So, I thought its ok. We didn’t realise at first, but, as we understood how the dys were passing and the end days were coming soon, after that it started becoming more difficult. Because, the team was changed. Actors had gone away).”

Main room bandh karke sirf ro rahi thi(So, I was the only person left on the sets, who was from the very first episode on the sets. So, for me, it was very difficult for me to leave the sets. And, the day I read the last screenplay, I cried for half an hour. I closed myself in a room and only cried).”
