Bringing alive a visually-stunning world with a solid story narrative was the main aim for Mitakshara Kumar, our director, and everyone at Emmay Entertainment including me. Right from the story to the star-cast and high production value, our ambition was to create a show that is larger than life; one that leaves a lasting impression on viewers.
