This film marked a big change in Hrishitaa Bhatt's career, as it was her first titular role. Bhatt's performance in the film was praised by critics.[3]

Small time Marathi actress Teja Deokar played Hrishitaa Bhatt's part in the recent unofficial remake in Marathi titled Nati, which means 'Actress'.
