I am very excited and really looking forward to the audience reaction.”
Anushka Ranjan quipped, “The digital medium gives artists the opportunity to explore characters in its entire gamut of shades. When I read the script, I was sure that this is the kind of show with which I would want to make my digital debut. The character of Amy gave me a chance to explore a completely new side of me. Amy is vulnerable, but I am not. Exploring this side was a lovely experience and I had a lot of fun playing this character.”
Aditya Seal further added, “Veer is conniving and shrewd and would go to any extent to achieve whatever he wants. Understanding Veer’s mind, his thought process, his personality came as a challenge to me and it required a lot of preparation. This web-series apart from being entertaining has a strong message. It will motivate you to do what you want and through FITRRAT, we want to communicate that there is a lot more to life than just money.”
