Speaking about her show, Dia earlier told indianexpress.com, “Without revealing too much, I can tell you that it is based on true events. A story like this needs to be told. It is the most compelling, heart-rendering and beautiful story I have ever heard. I feel extremely lucky to play Kainaaz. The character and the places that it goes, I haven’t done that before.”
Commenting on the rise of the digital platform, she added, “What was considered small budget films are doing phenomenal numbers. The content-driven films are no more just risk-taking projects. Also, credible talent is backing such films. The audience is not just evolving but appreciating good stories also.”
Helmed by Sonam Nair, the series is penned by Bhavani Iyer and is inspired by a real-life story. It will start streaming from June 15.Read More
