Revealing more about her character she says: “This is my first Hindi web series. ‘Dhappa’ is a modern take on the idea of romance and love. I liked the show’s novel approach towards small town love stories and the humour that lies in such situations. I play Meera, a married woman who unknowingly steps beyond the societal boundaries of relationships causing a lot of comic turmoil in her life.”
Actor Jay Bhanushali plays a character from a small town in the series.
