On the launch of The Verdict- State VS Nanavati, Ekta Kapoor, Joint MD, Balaji Telefilms said, "We have been working on The Verdict for over 3 years now and it has all been worth it. This is one of my most ambitious projects and this time the story unfolds with Sylvia’s feeling. Till 2018 India had one-sided adultery law that branded a woman as her husband’s property. Sylvia Nanavati lived in a time where love and morality didn’t go hand in hand! For the first time, the audience will witness India’s most controversial case from another point of view.”
When asked about the show, Manav Kaul says, "It has been an absolutely engaging and enriching experience working on the show. Honestly, I am proud to be part of an ensemble which has India’s most prolific and veteran actors like Makarand Deshpande and Saurabh Shukla. A lot of research has gone into etching out each character and I am sure that audiences will be gripped by its different narrative and the impressive portrayal of characters by all.”
Talking about this Elli AvrRam said, “This is my digital debut and for the very first time I get to exhibit and experience a gamut of emotions with my character. Sylvia is a very vulnerable character and just imagining what the woman must have actually gone through in reality, excited me to portray it with utmost honesty. I am grateful to Ekta Kapoor for believing in me and my director Shashant Shah for giving me this opportunity. I am sure the audiences will love me in this never seen before avatar.”
