A source from the crew said, “There were Haseena Parkar’s three children - Alishah, Umeria and Khushiyan and Haseena’s brother Sameer Antulay. Initially Shraddha and the rest of the cast were alarmed but the atmosphere softened soon and the tension dissolved.”

Apparently Haseena’s family liked what they saw. “Haseena Parkar’s children and brother fell in love with the way the film was being shot.They had come prepared for the eventuality of falling in love with the film .They had gotten along the real Haseena’s personal belongings, her reading glasses, nose ring and her favourite lipstick which they presented to Shraddha,” the source added.

Ankur Bhatia who plays Shraddha’s husband says, “It was an amazing experience for me to meet Haseena Parkar’s children. I had not met them before. They showed me some old photos of their father and gave me tips which will be really useful to play Haseena’s husband.”
