Reportedly Sachdev plays a shrewd small town woman called Vasundhara Kapoor.

She’s said, “It has been an absolutely wonderful experience. The series is shot in the chilly locations of Manali and I am really amazed to see myself adjust so well to the conditions here. Every day I get to learn something new and the whole experience is enriching. The unit is very helpful and makes the whole process very enjoyable.”

For the uninitiated, Achla who is a well known name on the ramp, has acted in a TV show ‘Kismat’ in 1992 and featured in Mira Nair’s 1996 film ‘Kama Sutra’. She also did a cameo in the 2002 movie ‘Na Tum Jaano Na Hum’ alongside Hrithik Roshan and Esha Deol.

Manjrekar’s show is a part of Sony Entertainment Television’s new venture ‘Specials @ 10’, which has brought together four Bollywood directors – Anurag Kashyap, Madhur Bhandarkar, Vikram Bhatt alongside Mahesh Manjrekar to make weekly shows.
