He goes through a multitude of emotions that could have strong repercussions in his life and in the lives of the people he loves.”

Working with the entire team, Madhuri Dixit, all the cast members and the makers, it was a great experience. I’m sure the audience will love the film. I’m looking forward to seeing the audience’s reactions as the film opens globally in 240 countries and territories on Prime Video” .

I’m truly delighted to have shared this space with so many talented actors of the industry. What will stay with me is the experience we had bringing this film to life – such a great time with a big happy family on set.”

She is her own woman, confident and free spirit,” said Barkha Singh. “There are such dynamic character arcs in the film, to which all the cast members have done full justice, guided by Anand Sir’s clarity of vision.

I have previously worked in many films and serials in various mediums but doing Maja Ma was another level of excitement. My character Tara has been beautifully etched as a strong, feisty and progressive young woman. Working with Madhuri ji and Gajraj ji was an absolute honor and privilege to say the least. Ritwik, Barkha and the rest of the Maja Ma team made the experience even more enriching and memorable. I can’t wait for the film, the music and the story reach audiences. I’m excited for the world premiere of Maja Ma on Prime Video.”
