Rumana says about her character on the show: “The concept is incredibly fresh, unique and corresponds to the current time. And luckily, the script lived up to the brilliant idea. Aarushi’s character is like a dream role for me. She is the one who comes up with the idea of ’Mixed Gender Cricket’ and she makes everything possible on her own. The character is so multi-layered and going through such an incredible journey that I felt pampered as an actor! And I’m not sure where to go from here. “

The cast has started filming for the series in Moradabad. Rumana shares her experience, adding, “The shooting in Moradabad was also amazing. From the weather to the cooperative nature of the locals and their excitement, it was incredible to take photos in this under-explored city. Hopefully more people will start shooting here after that. The highlight of this shoot was the sequence on a real police station and also playing cricket! As someone who never got into cricket, I suddenly developed an interest in the game and it feels good to finally get the insanity. “
