Though the cast and crew is tight lipped about the characters details, it is being guessed that Pooja’s character sketch is will be in the line of Birtish historian Mortimer Wheeler’s observation of the statue. According to records, Wheeler had commented about it, “She's about fifteen years old I should think, not more, but she stands there with bangles all the way up her arm and nothing else on. A girl perfectly, for the moment, is perfectly confident of herself and the world. There's nothing like her, I think, in the world.”
