“It was a great experience for me. I was shooting with veterans of the film fraternity, who have been so well established and experienced in the field,” says Manwa.

On her favorite moment in the film, she replied, “Actually, the over all experience for me was so over whelming. I enjoyed every moment of it. Its too hard to pin down just any moment. Although when come to think of it, I really enjoyed shooting the song - Merhaba, the song was truly beyond this world.” Manwa couldn’t stop admiring Ashwariya for her friendly persona. “Ash was like an elder sister to us. She never made us feel out of place for being new in the industry. She welcomed us and took really good care of us on the sets and made us feel quite comfortable with her hospitality.” quotes the actress.

On the turn of events from TV to the big screen, Manwa stated, “I was shooting a commercial with Ashish Gowarikar (Ashutosh Gowarikar's brother), and then one day he asked me if I had few days off, I said yes, he sent me for the audition, I was selected and took off for Jaipur the next day. I was shooting for ten days followed by few scenes at the Karjat studio.” Before signing off she adds, “I don’t have any projects on the big screen as of now, just hoping for the best.”
