It is one look that people loved a lot, and of course, it is Gangaur, so we had to do something extravagant. I'm so glad that the creatives and everyone on the team gave me this look. I feel I did carry it well. I'm glad I could do that."

Samridhii Shukla also credited Rajan Shahi for keeping the roots of Rajasthan intact in the show. “Rajan Sir has always gone above and beyond and presented the authentic culture of Udaipur. Sometimes the production house bears the costs of a lot of things; even this outdoor shoot, where we went, was completely provided by the production house, including all the costumes and everything else."

She added, "It shows how much sir really wants to bring authenticity to Udaipur, although it is difficult to actually go there, but he tried to preserve authenticity by going above and beyond and even spending from his own pockets, which means a lot."
She also shared that, though this was her first time celebrating this festival on screen, it was truly special.

"It is my first ever Gangaur celebration, and honestly, I didn't know much about Rajasthani culture, but I value and appreciate it so much more because there's so much family bonding, which I respect, and everything is done together, like making the idol and everything. It is an extremely nice experience, and it's a beautiful family bonding time as well," she ended.
