While portraying this role on screen, Pallavi stated that she wanted every Indian to despise her character. She plays a negative character in the film. It is certainly a major achievement for her as an actor that through her acting she has managed to make the audiences averse to her on-screen character.

She said "When I was talking to the Kashmiri Pandits about their trauma, I could sense the villain they were staring at. I made up my mind to do the character and play the role so vehemently that every Indian should hate the character.”

She further added "One day, a 4-5-year-old girl came to me and after pleasantries, she asked me when I am going for namaz? I said I don't do the namaz because I am a Hindu. The girl told me something that just shocked me. She told me, 'So what ... you should do the namaz because it is essential." She told the media, "I was shocked because the little girl didn't know that there are other faiths too. See the kind of radicalisation that is happening there. This is very dangerous,"
