The series is directed by Aditya Datt and stars Bijay Jasjit Anand, Raj Arjun, Karmvir Lamba, Vansh Pradhan, Rysa Saujani, Mac Bruckner, Grusha Singh, and more. Leone plays herself in the series and it was not an easy task to relive the dark times in her life.

“I thought I would be fine but when we started shooting, I realized I was not emotionally prepared,” Leone told India.com earlier. “No person would be fine reacting to some really emotional and traumatic moments, that they have pushed away. Going through it once again was really not easy and it was quite a challenging time to pull it off.”

Currently, Leone has been building an empire working on not just films, but music videos, hosting television shows, developing her makeup line Starstruck, and designing a line of merchandise. Leone is a proud mommy of three, to her adopted daughter Nisha, and twin sons, Asher Singh Weber and Noah Singh Weber born via surrogacy.
