Commenting on the web series, actress Ameesha Patel said: "I am extremely excited to make my debut in a web series, with such a wonderful concept and content, and am equally excited to start the web series in the UAE, a country that I am so fond of and visit very often. I love the people, the culture, the food, the glamorous and larger-than-life locations which are going to make the web series even more thrilling. It certainly feels great to start working after being in lockdown for four months."
On collaborating with Gaurang Doshi, Ameesha said: "Gaurang and I have wanted to associate together on films in the past but somehow that didn't happen. Now that I have got this opportunity, I am glad to be making my web series debut with a good friend and an even better producer. Gaurang always mounts his Bollywood film on a huge canvas and I am sure this time too he will not leave any stone unturned and will do his best to make his mark in digital entertainment too."
Speaking excitedly about getting back to shooting, Prateik Babbar said, "I feel blessed to be shooting again and salute Gaurang for making this project happen. The audience should expect the unexpected, a wild roller-coaster ride and my character will make the ride wilder, so buckle up".
Elli AvrRam, a Swedish-Greek actress based in Mumbai, said:"I don't really know how to express in words how excited I am to get back to a set, to step into a character and just live that character, be that character and just shoot. I feel so blessed and grateful that Gaurang is putting his belief in me, for letting me be a part of this show. That really means a lot to me and I will do my best to make him proud and hopefully, we will work on many more projects together."
Elli starred in the Bollywood film Micky Virus and participated in reality TV show, Big Boss.
