Last seen in the 2011 release "Kucch Luv Jaisaa", Shefali said: "When Nagesh met me for the film, the first thing I said that this story has to be told. It kind of hits you. There is no way you can't react to a film like this humanly..."
Her character in the film, based on child trafficking and prostitution, was another reason that made her accept the offer.
"Of course, I wanted to work with Nagesh as well. There is no way I could have said no to the film. It's completely special and brilliant role, and a story very, very needed to be told," said the actress here at the trailer launch of the movie.
