Elaborating on the success of the show, Ravii Dubey said, “Matsya Kaand has truly changed the trajectory of my career. It challenged me as an actor and made me physically mentally and spiritually align with this craft like never before . Matsya came with a lot of makeovers, physical transformation and an emotional quotient like no other character that I have played so far. It required a lot of hardwork and throughout the process, my director Ajay Bhuyan, producer Deepak Dhar (Banijay Asia) and team MX asserted that we were on the brink of cracking something big. Receiving positive reviews of the show re-affirmed that all the hard work we’ve put in as a team has paid off. And, when the show crossed 100 million views on MX player, I was speechless. To be honest, I couldn't have asked for a better end to last year.”
