In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Anushka Sen talked about her off-screen bonding with the cast of Dil Dosti Dilemma. She said, “The cast—I can't even begin to talk about them. They are just lovely; they are amazing, amazing people. I am so glad that through this amazing project, I met some really crazy, fun, honest human beings. They are literally my tribe, my vibe.”

Speaking about the opportunity to work with Tanvi Azmi on the show, Anushka expressed, “It was a dream come true. When you work with actors like a veteran… I have seen so much of her work. Truly inspiring, the passion that she has for her craft is immaculate. I am so inspired by her; she’s amazing.”


She continued, “She would ask me questions about social media. She was like a buddy, so sharing screen space with her was a dream come true; it was very magical, and I loved performing with her.”


Director Debbie Rao disclosed an interesting fact, saying, “We gave Asmara contact lenses so that she would have the same eyes as Tanvi Azmi, so she would look more like her nani, and they have some similarity.”

Anushka Sen further explained her connection with Vishakha Pandey, who portrays the character of Ruksana. She mentioned, “Ruru is that person who’s like a genuine pure soul. And I gelled so much with her on day 1. I was like, 'She’s such a sweet person,' and I feel very protective of her even though I am the youngest of the cast. I think you can see that friendship and that genuineness on screen when you see Ruru and Asmara starting to understand each other even though they're very different."

The actress also discussed her love interest in the show, played by Kush Jotwani. She revealed, “Farzan and Asmara are such important characters in the show. The budding romance that is happening is so sweet, and it's like what first love feels like. Kush and I are also really good friends. I am so proud of him; it's his debut.”

Commenting on her friendship with Revathi Pillai and Elisha Mayor’s characters, Anushka expressed, “I found my trio again. I have a trio in real life. I am so glad I met Revathi and Elisha; they're really amazing human beings, and I had so much fun shooting with them.”

She added, “All the senior actors respected us and gave us that space. They respected my profession and my craft and appreciated me as well. I learned so much from the seniors.”
