“Comparisons had to come hand in hand with Radhika’s character, but it never bothered me as I believe in creating and not following or replicating. I have adopted a few traits of the character played by Vidya Balan, but added a lot of new elements,” she added.

“Hum Paanch Phir Se”, aired on BIG Magic, is a sequel to “Hum Paanch”.
