The character portrayed by Priyanka required extreme amount of preparation on the part of the actress. Says Priyanka, “To get the right look for my character, we underwent 16 hours of trial-and-error. This role has been a demanding one. In order to understand my character, I kept reading the script many times and had creative discussions with my director to help me pull it off.”

The actress who is aware of Manto’s progressive ideologies and writings even before she was offered the film, says that being a part of an Oscar-nominated film (Lion) in the past does not put her under any pressure when it comes to delivering as an actor. “I believe in treating each film individually and giving her best to that role,” she adds. 

The film also stars Santosh Juvekar, Ankit Raaj and Vaibhav Raaj Gupta among others. It is being produced by Vikram Mehra and Siddharth Anand Kumar of Yoodlee Films.
