"I think I took it all for granted and I thought " we will be done in two weeks", and God (rolls eyes), it was way over my head." - Uru said.
"But, I think all the stress and hard work will pay off in the end". - She added.
On what inspired her to go into producing, she said "When I wrote the story, I wasn't comfortable giving it to someone else. "It was just a case of let me see if I can do it".
