The show has amassed a big fan-following. Speaking to Hindustan Times ahead of season 2, Sayani had said she didn’t expect it to be so successful. “Amazon was completely confident about this show because they typically have these group screenings and they were like people are loving it. We don’t have direct contact with them so we were like ‘Haan...theek hai dekhege.’ I don’t really overthink the show because that’s poisonous. You just do your job and forget about it. When it came out and became such a rage, so that was quite nice. There are still so many people who keep writing to us constantly. Whether at airports, when we go to malls and all. It’s quite cool,” she had said.
