When asked how she stays motivated besides the fact that apart from giving out a variety of content, digital platforms have also increased the competition. Amruta said, "I believe that motivation is a continuous process. I have been working for the past 20 years; I have done television, reality shows, regional films, Hindi films, and now OTT. I feel that motivation is something that has nothing to do with what you perform on set. It is something inherent in you that makes you motivate yourself to do good work. It's a day-to-day thing. And as actors, we need to understand and learn that whether there is work or not, motivating yourself is a must."

"If you don’t approach your life with positivity, then you will go nowhere. An actor's real job is to have patience and move forward with that patience. You see the actor between action and cut, but for an actor, the job is off the set," she further added.

Further speaking about shooting steamy scenes with her co-actor Chandan Roy Sanyal, the actress revealed, "I had multiple steamy scenes with Chandan Roy and we used to shoot at 2 or 3 am. People must think about how actors shoot such scenes but at 2 or 3 am you can’t really shoot anything, you’re just so tired you feel like going home. But Chandan and I got a really nice rapport so it made it easy."

Meanwhile, directed by Vishal Furia, 36 Days also stars Purab Kohli, Shruti Seth, Chandan Roy Sanyal, Sharib Hashmi, Sushant Divgikar, Shernaz Patel, Faishal Rashid, Chahat Vig, and Kenneth Desai. The show is set to premiere on SonyLIV on July 12, 2024, and will also be available on OTTplay Premium.
