Valentina is well-known for her television shows such as Don Matteo, All the Music of the Heart and Titanic: Blood and Steel. As per the same report, Tannishtha shared her thoughts on the Italian actress and how she bonded with Nawazuddin. "I knew she was the one the first time I met her. Valentina is very beautiful, a great actress and well-known in Italy. I did a few days of workshop with both of them before we started shooting and they get along really well, joking and pranking each other. She is a fun person," said Tannishtha.
