In today’s time, all filmmakers are giving importance to strong women characters and driving powerful female narratives. With the freedom to explore many characters in a long form series, directors are moving towards female centric stories or projects with strong female characters. Director Aditya aligns with the similar beliefs and has beautifully crafted Devika Naik’s character played by the talented actor, Harleen Sethi

Talking about it, director Aditya Datt said “I always believe that all my characters need to add their own element to the main story. It cannot be just a filler, which is very important for me personally as a narrator. With Harleen’s character written, we made sure that she was an integral part of the show. I come from a space where, in today’s day and age women officers or female officers, need to be portrayed as and how they are, which is very strong in life. I believe they don’t get that portrayal on screen and there are very few which have been done very well, but also it’s done very less. I was very cautious and clear about the narrative. I wanted the audience to see female characters in a very strong way. If they play any part, of any character in, in a broad prospect of the script which has its own standing, own views, own doings, own responsibilities, be her balancing her marriage, be her balancing her professional work, her personal ego issues with her husband, the kid, how she manages everything at the same time has a strong front.”
