Talking about the show Shweta Gulati who plays a pivotal role in one of the episodes said, “I am part of an episode set in 1970s. I am playing a high flying make-up artist who is in love. There are secrets which can bring down her lover’s career forever. My character is the loyal one who protects her lover irrespective of the circumstances. Crimes and Confessions is a clutter breaking show in the Indian OTT space I feel. When I was offered this show, I was surprised, however, it was like an experiment for me. So I am really looking forward to the audience watching the show. I hope they like it.”
Naagin 4 actor Ankit Bathla on the other hand said, “This story is set in post Independence era. I had to work on the way we speak as back in the days there were no slangs! So had to ensure this. The segment I’m a part of, is called ‘Not in mood for love’ and has 2 episodes of one hour each. We have tried to experiment a lot with the story. I really hope the audience enjoys the show just like we enjoyed and had fun while shooting for it.”
