Speaking about her character Pavitra, Jiya Shankar said, “Playing a positive protagonist obviously in such a kind of show will be interesting and exciting for me.” When asked why supernatural, she shared, “Abhi maximum cheez explore karli toh supernatural bhi kar hi lete hai. Plus it’s for Colors channel, so I thought why not.” (Transl: Since I have explored maximum genres, I thought why not supernatural too. Plus it’s for Colors channel, so I thought why not.)

When asked if she has faced any supernatural experience in her real life, the actress recalled one moment when she felt she did but hoped that it was just sleep paralysis. “I hope not. I don't want to face any. But there was this one incident that happened in when I was shooting in Banaras. So there was this one night I don't know if that was sleep paralysis, and I would like to believe it was and nothing ghostly. But so I was sleeping and I heard as if someone was walking towards me and all of that. So yeah, that was one experience what I hope it was sleeping paralysis.”

For the uninitiated, Harsh Rajput of Nazar fame will play the leading man of the show. Jiya will be playing his love interest on the show. Speaking about the camaraderie she shares with her onscreen love, Jiya revealed, “It's fun when he's around. Now, I think anybody would say the same. It's for everybody. Whenever he is on set, there's a different vibe. There's a different energy.”
