Talking about the project Amyra seems very excited, a daily quoted her as saying, “This came about as most offers do. I got a call from a casting director asking me to come in for an audition. They didn’t tell me what it was about, who was going to be in it or who was backing it. They just gave me a character brief and dialogues to memorize. I did my best and after a few days, I was called back for a second audition because they wanted to check if I could do the scenes in a different way to show my versatility. Everyone seemed happy with my performance and Shujaat called me to the office for a narration. I loved what I heard and then requested the team to send me all the episodes to read before I gave them an official confirmation.”
