Sumbul Touqeer Khan, Actor:
“What drew me to Kavya, is that she is such an inspirational character. Kavya has one purpose in life: to be an IAS Officer and this purpose gives her the courage to face all the challenges that life throws at her. Kavya is not just a character, she is a representation of many women who endure experiences that test their resilience, but it is their unwavering purpose that leads them to achieve big feats.We had a wonderful time filming the show in this splendid city and Lucknow’s warm and welcoming people, known for their etiquette and ‘Tehzeeb’ (cultural refinement), made us feel at home. This city, truly is a trove of experiences waiting to be discovered.”
Mishkat Verma, Actor:
“I am so excited about the opportunity of playing Adiraj, a character which is so different from the male characters portrayed on Indian television. He is a ‘lazy genius,’ and his captivating charm is matched equally by his remarkable intellect. I personally believe in giving women the credit that they deserve and calling out inequality, which is a similarity that I found in Adiraj as well. I am really looking forward to the launch of the show and I hope that the people of Lucknow will shower us with as much love as they have while we shot in this city.”
