Mimi Chakraborty who plays the role of Durga in the film looked chic in her torn jeans and sleeveless top. “Some of the scenes were very difficult to do. For instance there is one scene where I have been shown taking a bath in the Hamam. I had to sit in water for three to four hours which was itself a pain. Added to that, there was something used which helped in creating the smoky effect. That caused much problem during shooting”.
