Talking about her role, she said: "The first thing that attracted me to the story was the content because it is a woman oriented story and it's about an older woman, about the sacrifices she makes and how she overcomes the hindrances and obstacles in life. It's also a very beautiful and emotional story between a son and a mother.
"The show will showcase a lovely graph between their emotional journeys together. I am playing the role of Suhasini Rao, a sweet simple and emotional woman. Another reason that intrigued me to take this role up was that it has a lot of potential for performance. Also, in our country we see older men as protagonists but it's very rare that you have an older woman as a protagonist."
