When contacted, Supriya told Tellychakkar.com, “Yes, talks are on for this important character. I completely trust Ekta as she knows my plus points as an actor. And I very well know that if she has offered me a role, there will be quite a lot of meat in it. As of now, I only know that this will be a very strong character and I hope everything falls in place. It will be exciting to work with Ekta again after Tere Liye. I am keeping my fingers crossed on this show. But as of now, nothing is confirmed.”
