At the trailer launch event of Kathal- A Jackfruit Mystery, Sanya Malhotra revealed the reason behind signing up for the film just from a one-liner that her Pagglait (2021) producer Guneet Monga Kapoor shared with her over a Zoom call.
Speaking to the media at the trailer launch event of the film in Mumbai, the actress said, "Within a few months of the release of Pagglait, Guneet told me that she has a one-liner for a film which she would like to share with me. We got on a Zoom call and she gave me the one-liner, and I fell in love with it. After this, I met with the director of the film, Yashowardhan Mishra, who narrated the story to me."
Delving into her part, Malhotra said, "The role was a challenge because I didn't meet any cop before the preparations of the part. However, during the preparations, I met a few cops, and I got to experience that their life is quite challenging."
The actress added that she and her director once met a female police officer in Gwalior, who was working on cases in the police station and at the same time constantly catering to her young child.
Kathal: A Jackfruit Mystery directed by Mishra also stars Rajpal Yadav, Vijay Raaz in key roles, will release on Netflix on May 19.
