Tell us about your journey so far.
I quit my job at an American Consultancy – JLL & joined the acting school in July 2017. My first break was four scenes with the lovely Sayani Gupta in the series Four More Shots Please. I have been taking baby steps ever since & got blessed with some great projects like Aadhe Adhure (Play), Rajat Kapoor Sir’s Rk v/s RKay, RejctX on Zee5 & It’s My Pleasure on DishTV.
What is that one common thing you find in on-screen and theatre?
Everything’s the same. The only difference is that on stage, there’s no cut and the story flows in a linear manner.
Your role in RejectX was highly appreciated. How did you feel?
I’m deeply overwhelmed and my heart is filled with gratitude for all the love that’s being showered. It feels surreal.
How much difficult it was to play the role of a lesbian and having an intimate scene with the same gender?
I believe gender fluid is a term that describes my character best. The actor in me was super thrilled to play a meaty, layered & unique character that portrays such a sensitive topic in a heartwarming manner.
Aadhe Adhure is one of your renowned theatre shows. Tell us something about that?
Words seem sparse to describe my overall experience and journey during Aadhe Adhure. It’s by far my best learning experience & most favorite character of all time. It’s a role that shall always be very special & close to my heart.
OTT platform has a bigger audience reach compared to big screen your thoughts?
For me, it’s all about the joy of acting and enjoying the process. I don’t analyze audience reach, viewership & numbers on a frank note.
Which kind of story do you prefer to do more?
I am not biased towards any specific genre…I just want to act.
What was the first thing that came into your mind when you got your first project?
I felt ecstatic about getting onset and facing the camera.
