What led to you becoming an actor?
I always had interest in acting since childhood. Opportunity came in the most unexpected way when I thought my life is falling apart! The best part about
acting is it allows me to experience many lifetimes in one lifetime by taking on many different roles.
How did ‘Baarish 2’ happen? Tell us about your role in Baarish 2.
One casting director asked for my profile and said he’s casting for a prime character in a webseries and Sharman Joshi is playing the lead. I got selected for it! And it was a great thing as a start for webseries. So, Anuj (played by Sharman) has a good friend Manit and I am playing his girlfriend. It’s quite an interesting character.
What was it like working with Sharman Joshi?
Oh! He’s very amiable! Super fun and always active and smiling, he’s a great co actor too.
Who would you most like to work with in terms of actors?
Vicky Kaushal , Rajkumar Rao and Ayushmann Khurrana.
What do you seek in a project? Directors or big actors?
I look for the importance of my character and how it will be portrayed on screen. What will be the audience views after seeing it? More of all, the script is main!
When it comes to co-actor, I believe every actor has their own unique characteristics and we get to learn a lot from everyone. Directors play the major role of taking out our hidden talent and develop our skills at a huge level.
In which genre you would like to do your next project?
I would love to do a crime one with lots of suspense and climax like solving a mystery because it will give me to show 2 sides or maybe more of mine (character) in the same project.
