Sharing more on the same lines, Director Jackson Sethi said, “Playing Ahilyabai Holkar is a challenging role, especially for a child and it required childlike innocence, which would give the character more authenticity. The essence of the character to be justified on screen was very critical. I believe we found what we were looking for in Aditi Jaltare. She has been an ideal choice. While, she has worked in the industry before, she doesn’t carry a baggage of those experiences. She is a natural delight and is always eager to learn. She has truly got into the skin of the character. She made for the perfect choice to play the childhood role of Ahilyabai Holkar.”
