Heaping praises on co-actor Kemmu, Amruta Khanvilkar says, “Kunal is a thorough professional. He went through a rigorous training routine and on set he used to work out to look what he has looked in the film. Since I am a Maharashtrian, he had this habit of speaking to me in Marathi which made me super comfortable. He being a fine actor not only helped me in my performance but people also loved our chemistry.”

The actress is pleased that she has managed to register her presence in movies with her powerful supporting characters. She is also glad with the fact that Hindi filmmaker do not come to her with typical Marathi characters, something which happens a lot with actors from Marathi cinema.
