And, Appnapan gives me ample opportunity to do so with Nikhil’s character. He is one of the most-loved celebrity chefs in New York, but somewhere he feels lost in the crowd owing to his past.
Cezanne Khan added, “Nikhil’s character has so many layers which makes it very interesting. So, getting into the skin of the character and portraying those layers has been quite challenging, and a great learning experience for me.”
Adding to that, Rajshree Thakur, essaying the character of Pallavi said, “While Pallavi has a bitter past, she doesn’t let that affect her kids and that’s one reason why she is deeply involved in their lives, making the kids distance themselves from her. Portraying Pallavi has been an utmost joy.”
“The creators of the show have crafted a promising story with Appnapan that gives a fresh perspective about second chances, family and relationships; Hope the viewers enjoy it,” she signed off.
