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.

Many television actresses have ventured into films this year, like Mouni Roy with Gold and Karishma Tanna with Sanju.
