“Pippa” narrates the compelling story of three siblings who play different roles but unite with unwavering support during a time of war.

In discussing her role, Mrunal Thakur shared, “Radha is a character close to my heart. She represents the resilience and strength of women, not just emotionally, but also intellectually. It was refreshing to see a female character actively involved in the war effort, making significant contributions through her expertise in cryptography. Pippa showcases a different perspective, and I am honored to bring Radha’s story to life.”
