And now, the actor opens up about his experience shooting the series, giving a closer look at his character and the love and appreciation he has been receiving. Chintan goes on to say, "My journey till here has been quite overwhelming, I come from a middle-class Gujarati family. To pursue acting in such a household is a task, and it begins with a big ‘NO’ from your parents. (laughs) But eventually, my parents came to terms with what I wanted in life. And now here I am, living my dream"

Talking about his character, Chintan continues, "I didn’t relate to a single attribute of Faruq. I had to work on a few things, starting with the vocals, grasping his posture, the external factors, and finally understanding the psychology of the character. I wanted it to be very real and not a superficial character. I really tried my best to give my best, keeping in mind how sensitive the character is. The only part I relate to with Faruq is how he suppresses his feelings. And also his very rave fashion sense!"
