The sheer versatility which she possesses is extremely rare, which is one of the many reasons why I had decided to approach her for the supernatural thriller last year.”

Revealing how he was confident about casting the actress for the part from the very start, he said, “I had full faith in her that she would be able to do justice to this role and that is exactly what happened. When I had the idea of continuing the story, I couldn’t imagine doing it with any other actor.”

“For me, Nushrratt had imprinted the character of ‘Sakshi’ and only she could have taken her journey ahead on the big screen. I am super excited to work with the team again to present an even more exciting and thrilling chapter of Sakshi’s life in front of the world”, he concluded.
