Shiwangi says she received an email in the year 2018. There was something in the email about discussing the kitty party with him in the context of shooting a film. Initially, she assumed that someone was joking. However, as she was cooking in the kitchen a month later, she received a call on her phone informing her that they are making a film and they want to chat to her about the kitty party after watching her YouTube channel. She thought it was all a joke, because people keep fighting for a chance in movies, and she didn't know anyone in the industry.
