The actress confirmed the news of her debut to Times of India. "It’s a female-centric story. I also love the fact that it’s set in a time and place, where we are away from the hustle and bustle of city life, technology, daily rush and competition. I am also thrilled about challenging myself in a brand new medium," she said.
She also said that she is currently taking a break from the soap opera and will film the show after she finishes her film.
