Through the series we see different shades of her character. She is headstrong, matured, focussed, and fierce. She is not scared of standing up for herself and others; even when nobody believes in her foresight.

Ask Manasi and she quips, “Yes, I learnt to use the sewing machine for the series as we had a few scenes where we needed to stitch garments or at least act so. As you can see in the video, I am not a pro but at the same time I like to learn and have fun while doing the same."
“Also, for the part where I stand for elections in the prison, I did a lot of referencing. A few scenes needed me to be very driven and vocal about certain issues. So, I saw videos of a lot of women politicians in the parliament and even social activists. I studied their body language during rallies and also how these women expressed themselves in public. This helped me etch out my character with a lot more precision”, she further adds.
