"The beautiful thing is that I feel like I have worked with the entire family. I have worked with Supriya Pathak ji in Toofaan, with Pankaj Kapur sir and Shahid in Jersey and now with Ishaan in Pippa. It’s just a beautiful coincidence," she said, speaking with SpotboyE.

She also revealed that she has discussed Ishaan with Shahid. "When Shahid and I talk about Ishaan, we only speak about how talented that boy is. I can’t wait to work with him because the energy he imparts is amazing," she said before adding, "They both are extremely different and so is their approach towards their work. I haven’t spent much time with Ishaan yet but we get along really well and I know that you will see that bonding in Pippa."

Mrunal had wrapped Jersey with Shahid and Pankaj last year. Shooting had come to a halt owing to the Covid-19-induced lockdown. The shoot resumed in October. While the team managed to complete the schedule by the end of the year, Mrunal confessed she was scared to return to the sets.

Speaking with Hindustan Times last year, Mrunal said, "I was scared but the joy of being on a movie set was great. We couldn’t stay or sit together and kept distances, wore PPE suits, sanitised often - it was a long process and back then, we didn’t know what measures we needed and what worked. It was all still new but today we know better! By the end of the schedule in Dehradun, we were all happy after working so hard."
