Speaking about continuing the same crew for the sequel too, "I had told Aanand ji that it is everybody's efforts from the smallest person to the biggest, so try and stick to the same crew. I will apply the same rule when it comes to my film."
When questioned about donning the director's hat once again, she doled out, "I have delivered a Rs 100 crore film as a director with 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi'. So, I will try and keep myself as the director unless I find someone better than me for this job. She goes on to add that though she is willing to take up direction, she will be happy to just act too. "Obviously, I will be more than happy to just act as an actor because I have lots of responsibilities in terms of other projects that Manikarnika productions is going to announce. The pressure is a lot but I do believe that I can do a lot. So, I'm looking for someone to direct but if not then I am there, I will definitely do it."
Finally, she concluded, "This year I will be finishing my earlier commitments and then I will start the pre-production of 'Aparajita Ayodhya' in July. It is dependent on the seasons, so we have to shoot accordingly. I can simultaneously do pre-production of two projects and roll with two films in 2022. This is the plan right now but let's see how things go, it is a creative process."
