Oindrila said, “I was asked to attend the look set for Alo Chhaya . When Susanta da saw me with big curls and wearing Chhaya ’s costume, he finalized everything on that day. He briefed me the character. I knew it is a big responsibility. I have played a modern character in Shubho Dristi. I don’t want to look repetitive.”

The viewers were curious, whether Chhaya’s character has negative shades. Oindrila said, “Many people asked me whether Chhaya is a negative character. But trust me, it is a very positive character. Chhaya is innocent and very pure at heart. She feels bad for Alo. ”
