Talking about Rosie: The Saffron Chapter, Palak Tiwari said, “It was actually for me, just another mundane lockdown day, and then out of nowhere, we get a call asking me to audition for a story that truly left me chilled to the bone, and infinitely curious. So, naturally, I was very excited to audition and understanding more of this character. I gave my audition and after a few days, Prerna (Arora) ma’am gave me the great news that they have picked me. I was ecstatic. I am very excited to be working with a team as nurturing and supportive as Mandiraa Entertainment.”

She added, “Preparing for the character is going to be tricky, but I definitely intend to draw inspiration from all our classic heroines that lay the foundation of Bollywood as we know it today. They are the pillars of authenticity. Sadhna ji’s work in Woh Kaun This is definitely a close point of reference. Performances from that era in general are so immensely edifying. So, I shall surely be looking more into that.”
Rosie: The Saffron Chapter revolves around the sudden disappearance of a woman named Rosie, who was an employee at a BPO company in Gurugram. The film is expected to go on floors in September.
