Kubbra definitely fell in love with her role as even when the series ends, the character of Kukoo tends to stay with the audience. Talking about playing the role of a transgender, she says "I am more empathetic and aware now. The implications of [section] 377 [of the IPC], the meaning of transexual, Pride day and LGBTQ, all have a new meaning. Now, everything [transgender roles] will be compared to this [character]. Taking up this role has been a big move."


A lot of people have been online asking whether Kubbra Sait is transgender in real or not. Talking about this she said , "That according to me is their appreciation. I am a woman who likes men, yet, I have managed to convince the world that I have a willy. I played the character with the same honesty that I played a tree when I was a six-year-old, in a school play."
Talking about her favourite meme that went viral, she added "There's one that places my character among the greatest real-life magicians, in a reference to the 'Kukoo ka jadoo' angle in the series.".
