About The Leap
Regarding her character and leap, Shivangi was quoted by India-forums as saying, "It feels like a new show now. My character has changed a lot. It has completely transformed. For me, this (her character) is different. I have never done anything like this. I love playing her and it is like a challenge for me."
She adds, "My character, before the leap, was like me. But now it is the complete opposite. It is challenging for me and quite difficult too. I thought it will be easy, but it isn't. However, I am loving it!"
Regarding her looks, the actress said, "My look has changed and I am loving this new look more. It's very casual and I am very comfortable."
