Talking about her character in the movie and what kind of efforts she will have to take to essay her role, Durga said, “I had to put in a lot of hard work to portray Rani. Writer-director Bharat Sunanda wanted a fragile girl, but I am an athlete. I have played rugby on the national level. Naturally, my body language was more masculine.”

“I had to work a lot to portray a delicate girl and it took me almost six months to get into the skin of Rani,” informs Durga. The celluloid explores the tragic love-story on the backdrop of some of the worst gang wars in the history of Mumbai, capital of Maharashtra.
