In an interview, while expressing her disappointment, she said,
This was my first Hindi show, so I am a bit disappointed. But the distress is that I let go other good offers. I did not say yes to Raaz 3, the movie. I so wanted to live the journey of Soyarabai who was chirpy initially, then a mature wife and lastly a negative lady who wanted Shivaji’s kingdom. In fact, the creatives had told me that my character would be turning negative soon but now with the show going off air, that’s definitely not happening and hence, there is this regret. I think I should not have stuck to my commitment rather I should have moved on when I had got a better opportunity.”
