Talking to Indian Express, Palak said, “It was actually for me, just another mundane lockdown day, and then out of nowhere, we get a call asking me to audition for a story that truly left me chilled to the bone, and infinitely curious. So, naturally, I was very excited to audition and understanding more of this character. I gave my audition and after a few days, Prerna (Arora) ma’am gave me the great news that they have picked me. I was ecstatic. I am very excited to be working with a team as nurturing and supportive as Mandiraa Entertainment.”
Palak also said that she will be taking veteran actress Sadhna's performance in Woh Kaun Thi as a reference point. The film will be about Rosie, a BPO employee from Gurugram who mysteriously disappeared. Directed by Vishal Mishra film will go on floors in September.
