When I was offered this role, I met with a small accident and hurt my leg. So, I was like lo gya ek acchaa kaam haath se…but the makers planned it such that the things did fall in place with me limping for the earlier part of the series. But then, the lockdown happened and the work went on hold. I recovered in those months so eventually when we were back on the shoot post lockdown. I had to then recreate that limp-wali walk (laughs). Badi mehnat lagi…also the story was completely different from whatever I had done but the team’s conviction in me saw me through.”
