I want to make my own mark as an actor in the industry, and it feels great to begin my journey by playing Nasir Jamal, a character that fascinated me ever since I read the script.

Bamfaad is a script that is truly heartfelt and to be brought to life onscreen is a craft on its own. The debutantes director Ranjan Chandel had earlier expressed what he felt about the film that will feature two debutants, Aditya Rawal as Nasir Jamal and Shalini Pandey as Neelam. The director said that Aditya and Shalini fit the bill for the characters which the makers have envisioned. There were many experienced actors who were reached out to for these roles but the raw energy that Aditya and Shalini bring with them make them more apt for the roles. Their refreshing chemistry is something to keep a lookout for. Apart from Aditya and Shalini, the film also stars Jatin Sama and Vijay Varma. Shalini felt that Neelam was a bold and courageous 24 year old but it was actually the vulnerability of the character that drove her towards the role. She wishes that she is able to get projects that constantly challenge her which will make her learn alot in the process.
