Speaking of her performance in the show Aastha Sharma says, “I needed to practise dancing because it’s not easy to pass off as a great dancer on camera when you aren’t one. Acing postures and dance moves can be very challenging for someone who is a non-dancer, but I had to rise to the occasion. I had my phone switched off and got to rehearsing the sequence for 16 hours straight. To my surprise, dancing felt like fun, and I thought I was frightened for no reason. I’m glad that I acquired a new skill through this show. I would like to thank the choreographer for being patient with me and making me feel at ease while learning the moves. The day I shot for this sequence felt like an exam. I’m happy that all my efforts paid off.”
