Karuna Pandey, who plays the role of Pushpa, said, “For me, diving into a character means fully immersing myself to make it come alive on screen. After portraying Pushpa for over a year, I've come to live her character thoroughly. I went through extensive research and took inspiration from individuals who navigate daily life with similar difficulties while performing the scene where Pushpa injures both her hands. Acting with both hands wrapped in bandages was challenging, but what was inspiring was portraying Pushpa's strength and optimism, even in the face of adversity. Even on set, with my hands wrapped in bandages, I found ways to use my elbow to operate my phone.”
