She has completely transformed herself for the film, the audiences will be in for a real treat!” Speaking on why he chose Fatima for this character, Abhishek Sharma shares, “Her character has a dual personality for which we needed an actor who could play vulnerable, mysterious ad assertive with equal ease. Fatima is an excellent talent who has the quality to get into all these emotions at will. She is extremely punctual, very involved and dedicated with her work. Her infectious enthusiasm keeps us all energized on the set!”
