Anurag is the happiest when he is shooting. He is buzzing with ideas. He was writing my lines and directing me. He involves himself in conversations with his actors, to know what they can bring to their characters.Nawaz is a man with zero charade. He is just sitting there waiting patiently for his turn to face the camera. He is quiet, composed and very shy. When he is in front of the camera he is a chameleon. It was nothing short of magic to work with him.
I’d die without humour. Mine is sarcastic. Most people don’t get me. But I snigger inside my heart. I don’t think I could ever go out with some one who wouldn’t laugh or make me laugh.
If you play a maid you’ll never become a heroine. I’m glad I played the part. I’m glad it all worked out. I got to face the camera. I never wanted to be a heroine, I was on my way to become an actor. “Don’t anchor”, you’ll get type casted. I had to pay my bills in the city. I’m glad I did what I was good at, making time to go for auditions. I got more time to think about the work I wanted to do. Also thankfully I did end up getting Gully Boy without an audition because I was an anchor.
I’ve always believed you be the best version of yourself. You can’t survive anywhere being the template version of someone else. You need to be you, even if people can see the uniqueness at first.
Dolly Kitty aur woh chamakte sitaare, Verdict and Law and Honour. Then there is RKay Vs RK, Onir’s We Are. It is a sequel to his National award winning film I Am.

Actor – I will always be a Shah Rukh Khan fan girl. The recent actors are so so good though. They make me swell with pride, Ayushmann, Vicky Kaushal, Nawazuddin, Raj Kummar Rao, Aalia bhatt, Kalki Koechlin, Shobita, are just outstanding
Film – All time favourite is Kuch Kuch Hota Hai. But I also like Uri, Raazi, Badhai Ho, are just spectacular.
