Sharing her perspective in an interview, Mahie Gill said: "The story of Posham Pa is inexplicable. I still cannot fathom how circumstances can make someone so cruel. It is one of the most challenging roles I have essayed and when I heard the script, I decided to take it up almost immediately. We are now looking forward for it to premiere on ZEE5 and be available to a global audience."
Sayani Gupta also said: "It has been a very difficult journey to get under the skin of my character. Right from my look to the brutality of the murders, it has all been mind-numbing. Getting into the psyche of a criminal drains you physically and emotionally. Posham Pa will premiere on ZEE5 and will reach such a wide audience base."
Ragini Khanna, who plays the role of one of the daughters in the film said: "Posham Pa has an enticing plot, making it a must-watch for viewers who enjoy watching thrillers. It was a tough shoot and an experience which I will carry with me forever. It is an exciting time for new stories and content to flourish. I am happy that ZEE5 is backing such unique stories and we are looking forward to the release on the platform."

Director Suman Mukhopadhyay said: "We are presenting a film that has multiple focal points. Truth and reality look so puzzling when seen from different perspectives. The script brings this out through a nonlinear treatment. However, the actors have walked a distance to ensure their performance is power-packed."

"To portray the psychological labyrinth of the characters that travel a few decades is an immensely challenging task. Everyone has worked very hard in putting this together and I hope with ZEE5's massive reach, Posham Pa travels extensively," the director concluded.
