“We had auditioned a lot of people and despite receiving a lot of good responses we still hadn’t found the absolute right cast for Kashaf Quaze,” says Shefali. Kashaf Quaze, portrayed by Shriya Pilgaonkar is one of the lead characters who are very complex by nature.

Adding more to the details of the protagonist, the director said “Along with being very articulate, the performance of this character had to include shades of deep emotions.”

“While auditioning for Shriya, we realized that not only is she a fine actress but has a great screen presence. She could delve into the emotional graph that the character requires and was very effective while arguing as Kashaf,’ she concludes.

Co-directed by Jayant Digambar Somalkar, and produced by Karan Grover, Antara Banerjee and Naved Farooqui, Guilty Minds will exclusively stream on Amazon Prime Video from April 22, 2022.
