“I am really touched and happy that I have such a wonder full cast. Neelu ji knew that in my family we don’t have any Godh Bharai rituals hence she herself came forward and took charge of each and every tradition. Starting from Nazar Utarna to the way the entire Godh Bharai tradition follows everything was done. My team members have actually also put up a poster in my room of two kids. It’s really sweet and very nice the way everyone is taking care of me”, commented Kanika.
