Human is directed by Vipul Amrutlal Shah and Mozez Singh. Shefali advised PTI about her character, “Gauri was written in a certain way, but the more I read the script and thought about it, I decided to play it differently. I am glad my directors agreed and gave me the freedom. Gauri is unlike anyone I have ever known. It pushed me out of my comfort zone because she is completely opposite to me. She is like a Pandora’s box. I studied the script every single day but she kept surprising me because the character is unpredictable.”
