Speaking about her bespectacled look, she said. "Spectacles are not comforting. When I was narrated and given a brief about my character and get up, I was very skeptical about whether I'll be able to carry it or not. But I am sure now."

Reports further suggest that, Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji will be aired in the afternoon slot. The show will have Sooraj and Sandhya's daughter, Kanak as the main protagonist and her relationship with Bhabho would be under rocks.
