While speaking about the audition process, she said that the casting director contacted her on Instagram after seeing her video.

It was a surprise when I was told to come down to Mumbai for the second level of auditions. I was hesitant to tell my parents as travelling from Assam to Mumbai is quite a deal. My father was like now let us go and see what happens. I got confidence after his encouragement."
