Sonel Singh who plays the character of Pari said, “I play the role of Pari who is a part of the Black Horses team at Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (NIM). Pari and her team-mates are always trying to create trouble for Anjali and her team-mates during their stint at NIM. We had to undergo rigorous training to prepare ourselves for the role of students who are in a mountaineering institute. It has been a dream launch for me as I got an opportunity to work with ace filmmaker Ashutosh Gowariker and it has been a great learning experience for me and all of who are associated with EVEREST.”
