Gaurav Amlani said, “When we shot the first few intoxicating scenes, it affected me emotionally for a few days, even though the audience sees it as a 5-minute track in the episode, it has 6- It takes 7 hours of shooting and 3-4 hours of preparation. So, 10-12 hours of carrying extremely sensitive emotions on screen can really impress you.”
