I feel doing a web series involves a lot of work. A lot of people associate themselves with it as compared to making a film. So, it takes a lot of time. But when I will do it, I will make sure that it turns out really well.”
Vidya has even been known to have bought the rights to this Sagarika’s book in order to create the web series.
