Showrunner Gurmmeet Singh said, “A big shout out to Disney+ Hotstar for giving us the opportunity to bring this story to life and take it live to the entire nation, extremely happy to have associated with Disney+ Hotstar on this creative journey.

The series is a window that opens a new world for me and helps me reach a wider audience. Playing the father to my reel life daughter Samara was quite challenging as it was intense and gritty. It has been fascinating acting alongside fresh talent like Samara and the extremely talented crew. I had the pleasure of seeing a young actor chisel her art and, in a way, it helped me grow too.”
Actor Samara Tijori said, “In Masoom, I play a young girl who is on a quest to uncover the truth when everyone around her wishes to leave it buried. Getting to play this role with a veteran actor like Boman Irani as my on-screen father was a great learning experience. As a whole, working with a cast and crew that had so much experience, I grew as a performer and a person. I really hope audiences enjoy the thrill and rush that the story will take you through.”
