Esha Gupta who has done movies like ‘Jannat 2’, ‘Chakravyuh’ and ‘Rustom’ says that it is great that female actors are getting a chance to play strong characters.
She says: “Playing the role of a cop is an honour. I have always been fascinated by women in uniform. It’s a challenging yet an exciting character to portray in ‘Nakaab’. Women have made great strides in all fields, and I am glad to see roles of substance for female actors now finding their way via web series and even films in the Indian entertainment industry.”

He doesn’t see the world as black and white; he does what needs to be done.”
“‘Pawan’ is a very layered character and has been a great inspiration for me since it is so varied and diverse from the characters that I have played in the past. I am elated to have got the opportunity to play ‘Pawan Bisht’,” concludes Rode.
