Talking about Mallika and why she is the biggest threat in Aladdin's life, Debina said, "Mallika as a villain does not show off her powers. She is aware of the skills and magic she possesses but believes to keep them under wraps. This way no one can get an idea of her capabilities. This unpredictability is what makes her the biggest threat to Aladdin. She chose to take control of his Ammi by converting her into a jinn, without harming Aladdin directly she forced him to do her bidding. As the story progresses, viewers will be able to see various sides of her and what new challenge she will make Aladdin go through."

She is one of the most impulsive and unpredictable characters I have essayed. She is glamourous and bold and I have been thoroughly enjoying playing a character with such a complex personality. It is always a great experience to play a character that is opposite to you in real life and especially in a fantasy show where Mallika is also equipped with power and magic. Having said that, sometimes one might be a little apprehensive if the fans would like the artiste in a negative role but Mallika has been thoroughly appreciated and loved."
