As soon as I came to know that he was playing the role of Major Suraj Singh, I became very emotional. I am very excited to be working with him again. It has been a great experience working with him. We have very good understanding. He always makes his co-actors feel comfortable too. "
Regarding working under the direction of Mahesh Manjrekar, Mahi said, "Shagun's character has been a very big journey for me. She is very brave, but she knows that army life is not easy. Her husband Major Surendra Singh is a soldier first and later her husband. She bravely fights with the miseries of her life. "

I do not miss the big screen, although I grew up watching movies on the big screen and my first film was also released on the big screen. But OTT has given work to many people, including actors and technicians. Also, a very good script is being worked on and is reaching more audiences. ” These webseries are being liked a lot these days on Hot Star.
