Her overall look. Her costume, jewellery, everything. I always wanted to wear the kind of clothes that Pakhi wears. So, I am very grateful to my creative director for this.
When did you realise that you wanted to pursue acting?
I don’t remember exactly when I realised that I wanted to be an actor but I used to do mimicry in my school and college days. I used to read celebrity interviews and I wanted to be one of them. After engineering, I just happened to tell my father about my interest and he told me that I should get into acting.
Tell us about your first break.
My first break was an appearance in Code Red on Colors. After that I did Sankat Mochan Mahabali Hanuman and started with character roles.
Any dream role that you would love to do?
I want to play the role of Danto from Tanu Weds Manu Returns, which Kangana Ranaut played. A tomboyish character. Also I want to play a psychopath.
You are a trained dancer. Tell us more.
I have done Visharad in Kathak, a six-year-course from Khairagarh University, Chhattisgarh. Dance for me is freedom of expression. It clears my mind. I can dance anywhere. Whenever I hear beats, my body just starts swaying. It is my first love and will always be.
