It was always a fun place to be in; with us brainstorming about where and what we could do better with regards to our art and craft simply putting forth the best possible experience for our viewers.”
She also added, “The expectations that one has from a show like ‘Pavitra Rishta’ is always high. So, we were not expecting anything less than the best for Pavitra Rishta, and it is what we had tried to put out. Looking at how everything has turned out and the kind of love that the show has been fortunate enough to receive, it looks like we have done a decent job with the show, which brings me immense pleasure.”
