It is really unfortunate that certain sets cannot be pulled down as that would involve a humongous cost to re-erect them, but then, keeping them intact is also going to be a costly affair as the shoots, which have stopped, are not likely to start very soon.

The series will include 10 episodes and it will be released soon on MX Player. Sunny is not just playing a lead role in Anamika but she will also be seen in a never-seen-before avatar.
