    However, it must be noted that Amar and Priyal share a big age difference of around 25 years both on-screen and in real life. Now, in an interview with SpotBoyE, Amar Upadhyay opened up about the age gap and the apprehensions he had initially in shooting romantic scenes with his co-star.

    The actor shared, "The concept of the show is based on our age gap. So, being the senior actor I had restrictions in my mind that I am elder to her. And she is really very young to me. How will it look? So, first of all I had to make Priyal comfortable and I think it was my responsibility also.

    He went on to add, When our romantic scenes started I had to tell her that we have to give our 100% in the scenes. And we have to forget the age thing. Because if we have that in our mind that we have an age difference, then the audience will also keep thinking. Because I believe acting has to look real and convincing and for that, you yourself have to believe first and then the audience will believe in you. And once they believe you they will follow you. After we spoke about all this clearly. There was no stopping."

He concluded by stating that age was the biggest hurdle between them and they have successfully overcome that.
