"Whenever we're rehearsing, I'll try to play it in a more comedic way and (executive producer) Chuck (Lorre) always comes in and says, 'Play it simply. You're beautiful when you're simple.' I'm constantly told to reel it back in. I think I'm giving them what they need for the show. Every sitcom needs their straight man or straight woman."

Mann would go on to reveal that the plans for Priya were different at the start. Priya was about to get married in the initial plot, and her final fling was with Leonard. However, she was able to get extra episodes because of the other storyline she was eventually given.

Mann reveals, "The character changed completely. Originally she was engaged and she was going to get married and Leonard was her last fling. We rehearsed it over the week and it became just Priya making a booty call," she said.

Although she wasn't a fan favorite character given that she got in the way of Penny and Leonard, Aarti was received positively by her peers, including Johnny Galecki.

Johnny Galecki reveals, "I thought it made a whole lotta sense. She did one episode this season, and we just really loved Aarti [Mann], and her work ethic kind of melded with everybody else's." Mann ended up leaving the show following her breakup with Leonard. Although she wasn't brought back, a fan did notice that the sitcom subtly gave an update on what happened in her personal life once she broke up with Leonard.
