Neha Sargam as Yashomati Maiyaa
I’m grateful to visit Vrindavan and Mathura and excited to experience the holiness of the place and meet the people. It will help e know more about Lord Krishna and Yashomati through local lore and experiences. Vrindavan and Mathura itself means calmness and positivity, and I have always wanted to try Vrindavan’s famous methai and visit the famous Krishna temples there. As we’ve all grown up watching and hearing stories of Kanha, so it’s exciting for me to play such an integral part in ‘Yashomati Maiyaa Ke Nandlala’. It’s a great learning experience as well to revisit the bond shared between Yashodha Maiiya and Kanha from a different perspective altogether.
