Manjiri Fadnis in the role of a grieving mother does not have much to offer. She is also suspected by Amit to be cheating on him but the tension and guilt, if there's any truth to Amit's perception about his wife's character, are not explored as genuine emotions that would have fleshed out her role more.

Talking to an entertainment portal, Manjiri talked about her casting and also experience on a digital platform.

“It was a very simple process. I received a call from the production team and they told me about the concept. Since it’s based on a real story, I also did my little research and was immediately very excited about it”, Manjiri said.

“And when I finally met Bugs, the director, I got the vibe that I want to work with him, and follow his vision. He is a sweetheart and one of the most lovely and talented people I have met in the industry. Then when I got to know that Amit Sadh will play the male lead, I was blown away. He is an amazing actor and we had a great experience shooting for the film.”

When asked about her appearance in the digital platform, “To be very honest, I was a little taken aback when I got to know there would be four kids (laughs). But when I heard what the film was about, it overpowered my apprehension. It was a no-brainer for me and I would have been stupid to not do it. Also, I feel times have changed and today actors are seen as only actors. It doesn’t matter if you play a mother as long as you can perform,” Manjiri concluded.

The digital platform is content-driven nowadays, Manjiri said, “It is brilliant. Filmmakers, producers, actors - everyone is getting a chance to experiment. When it comes to cinema, people are scared to take chances. Also with box office numbers and returns involved, people want to play safe. With the digital medium, that fear is gone. The audience too, after getting exposed to different content and world cinema, has evolved and matured. That has given rise to more meaningful and content-driven projects.”
