Shakal Ahmed said about the drama, “‘Apa’ revolves around the hardship of a lower-middle-class family without a father. Sacrificing her own happiness, Apa (the central character) tries to run the family. When she starts to live with her mother, brother and sister happily, sadness seeps into her life once again. Her love interest Dinar neglects her and Apa becomes helpless all over again in her life.”

Regarding her role, Bijori said, “The story of ‘Apa’ is a very common story trending in our society. While working in the drama based on the story connected to real life, I became very emotional. I believe many audiences would find similarities with their life in the drama. For my long-term collaboration with director Shakal Ahmed, I can now understand how he wants me to perform in any role. I am optimistic about the drama.”
