And I instantly made a call to someone and asked, 'who's this girl?' They said her name is Erica. I wanted to cast her since the day I saw her in promo. And then I offered her the show as soon as hers ended." Moreover, she also praised Parth Samthaan, who will be playing the role of Anurag. "As for Parth, I auditioned many guys but none had the eyes that speak like his does. I saw his picture and cast him," said the TV czarina.
