A source close to the team reveals, “The team was surprised with her blunt statement of coming all the way to Chandigarh for audition with such a petty amount.”
“I went for the audition in Chandigarh and never thought the money in my pocket will be the decision maker for me. My audition went well but when I told them about how much money I have and how strenuous my journey was to Chandigarh, they got very excited and thought that I’d be the perfect fit for Anokhi” quips the debutant.
Anokhi is a smart, bubbly and jugaadu girl of today’s generation, characteristics Ishani connects well with. She adds, “I’m quite similar to Anokhi and I think the team felt the same way and chose me to play the role. I’m very excited for this opportunity and I hope my character resonates with the youth.”
