Talking about performing all the fight sequences by himself in the series, Prateik says, “Action is a genre that has always been enjoyed by the audiences and I’ve been fascinated with performing stunts by myself. While there are certain sequences that have a need for technical skills or martial arts which are best left to professional stunt coordinators, I feel there’s a certain genuineness to it when you do your own stunts. I didn’t get fit simply to show off my physique, the goal was to ensure that I had the strength and stamina to keep up with my character. We practiced for a long time, I was in good shape for it all, and I trained during the shoot as well just to make sure there weren’t any accidents. This show really took me out of my comfort zone, it helped me explore and hone different aspects of my craft.”
