Vidya made the revelation during the trailer launch and said that while she had loved the script, she didn’t have the guts to do it. “But when pandemic happened, Suresh said that he had rewritten it.

The film is a gripping drama with elements of thrill,” she added.
Furthermore, Vidya also got candid about her role and said, “It’s very different from any character I have played before. She is very withdrawn, very confident but you don't know what's going on in her mind. I love exploring different facets of human personality and human behaviour”.
