In an interview, Ananya opened up on how she is grateful for the opportunity and was in initial shock. She told Galatta Plus that working with Vikram sir was actually a dream for her, because she had watched Udaan countless times, a movie that happened to be her mum’s favorite.
When her team informed her that Vikram sir wanted to meet her, she initially expressed disbelief, questioning the purpose of the meeting and wondering if he intended to work with her. Upon meeting him, Ananya even asked, ‘Are you sure you’re directing this film?’ It took her some time to register the fact that she was working with Vikram sir.

Ananya further admitted that self-belief is very low in her. She’s a validation-seeking sort of person. So even when on set, she needs her directors to confirm like 10 times that the shot was okay. She’s always like, ‘Was it okay? Should I do one more?’ Even when someone praises her work or compliments her, her first reaction is, ‘Really? Are you sure? Me?’ So she has that, which she’s trying to get better at. She doesn’t know where it comes from. She thinks it’s always been in her personality.
Motwane, known for critical hits such as ‘Udaan’, ‘Lootera‘, ‘Bhavesh Joshi Superhero’ and ‘AK vs. AK’, said his new movie has a modern-day appeal and is very relevant for the current times.
“The film is a ‘screenlifer’, and will be completely told via the screens we consume – computers, phones and televisions. It’s something that neither me nor Ananya has ever attempted before and I’m super excited to collaborate with her on this journey,” the filmmaker said in a earlier statement.
