As an actor I shared good chemistry with all of them. I was and I’m the biggest fan of Iqbal Khan from the time his first show came (on air) and I never imagined I would get a chance to work with him. He is a supremely natural,” she said.
“Crackdown also features Saqib Salim, Ankur Bhatia, Shriya Pilgaonkar and Rajesh Tailang.
