The enigmatic revelation that your character's name is 'Imlie' has left viewers intrigued. Could you shed some light on this mystery?
Ah, that's the mystery indeed." Candidly, she confesses, "To be honest, I'm not yet familiar with the whole story. Our shooting is set to commence tomorrow, and that's when I'll receive more detailed briefs. Nevertheless, I'm eagerly looking forward to it. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have landed this opportunity. On the day of the promotional shoot, we worked tirelessly from 9 in the morning until 1 at night. I was genuinely excited about the promo shoot. This being my second show, and with Star Plus no less, I feel truly blessed.
Having both Sumbul and Megha portray the character of Imlie in the show, whose performance did you find more appealing?
Adrija thoughtfully responds, "Honestly, it's a bit challenging to make a direct comparison. The portrayals of the characters by Sumbul in the first season and by Megha in the second season were unique in their own right. Sumbul's portrayal of Imlie in the first season was exceptional, and similarly, Megha's performance in the second season was remarkable. Both characters held distinct qualities. I had the pleasure of meeting Megha on set; she's a wonderful individual. Interestingly, we both hail from Bengali backgrounds."
Could you share a glimpse of the story post the leap and tell us more about your character?
As I mentioned before, I don't possess all the details yet. What I do know is that whatever unfolds, the show is bound to be captivating.

Lastly, reflecting on your journey from being approached for the show to securing the role, could you share your thoughts and emotions during that time?
When I was invited for the mock shoot, I was brimming with excitement. Being an extrovert, my excitement tends to be quite evident. You know that feeling when you're certain something will fall into place? A positive vibe? I felt that after the mock shoot. The feedback from everyone was positive, although the ultimate decision rested with the channel. I had this instinctive feeling that I'd make the cut. A week later, the confirmation call arrived. I immediately shared the news with my family, and their joy mirrored my own. I'm hoping the audience embraces the show, and I seek everyone's blessings. While my first show had a good run, this one holds an even more special place in my heart.
