This film will always be special for me.”

As actors, we work in a film like this that touches the audiences heart and loved by all age groups of people. I think such a film has to do good. It is a necessity. For people to say that they didn’t see Anuskha but just Mamta in the film makes me very grateful. And to convince people of that character who is so different than me and to be appreciated for that role makes me very happy.”
