Q: Can you share some insights into your journey from modelling to Bollywood?
I didn’t start as a conventional model through pageants or runway gigs. My modelling journey began with a breakthrough role in the film “1920,” Before that, I faced numerous auditions and rejections. “1920” marked my acting debut, and I am incredibly fortunate for that opportunity. It was a unique way to debut but I feel extremely fortunate to start with a role that gave me so much scope to perform.
Q: What inspired you to pursue a career in acting, and when did you realize it was your calling?
Well, it’s interesting how life takes unexpected turns. Initially, in school, I was actively involved in elocution, sports, and even had a passion for singing.
After the 10th standard I don’t know what got into me I suddenly thought I should do movies. I’m not even remotely connected to anyone who is in the film industry. If I thought it through I wouldn’t have become an actor.
Q: Your performance in “The Kerala Story” received a lot of praise. What kind of preparation did you do for that role?
For me it’s life and death for a role. When in front of the camera to give my all. All the prep mental to physical. Practiced the accent, learned my lines, met real life survivors.
Q: In an industry known for its competitiveness, what’s your strategy for staying relevant and building a successful career? I believe I would be doing injustice to my work if I start thinking about how to stay relevant instead of concentrating on creating art. I should put all my energy into enjoying each moment of being a character, seeing what I can contribute to each role I play. Success for me is being happy and this makes me the happiest
Q: Bollywood has been evolving in terms of content and representation. What are your thoughts on the changing landscape of Indian cinema?
Cinema is no more inclusive and it’s wonderful… The more inclusivity the more creativity and opportunity.
Q: Can you share any upcoming projects or roles you are excited about?
Before we shot the Kerala story last year, I had shot a few projects which are up for release. They were OTT films. But I’m equally excited for all the work I do, an ad commercial, a short film, a music video, a theatrical or OTT film. Any language. I get a chance with each release to connect with my audience so I’m excited about all of them.
Q: Outside of acting do you have any other interests or hobbies that you are passionate about?
I enjoy watching movies, playing the piano, watching birds and animals, sometimes watching people also.
Q: How do you deal with criticism and negativity in the entertainment industry and on social media?
It depends who is criticising me. If it’s someone who matters to me like a close friend then I take the inputs and try to improve. If it’s a troll with zero followers on social media then i don’t bother. It depends on who is saying what. Negativity is not just in the entertainment industry it prevails among humans everywhere. I get into a negative mood at times also and I try to get out of it as soon as I can because the more you dwell in negativity the more unhappy u will be.
Q: Tell us about any philanthropic or social causes that you are passionate about or involved in.
I am involved in a lot of causes for animals. Animals don’t have a voice to speak, there isn’t a court of law when they are done unjust. Helping rehabilitation of elephants is something that I am involved in as well… elephants are such sensitive animals, so intelligent and forgiving. So much we can learn from them.
Q: What do you envision for your career in the coming years? Any specific goals or milestones you’d like to achieve?
I don’t know how to be goal and plan oriented. I have never functioned that way. I hope I can continue acting in movies. I love doing that. And till I enjoy doing it i would like to. Once! don’t enjoy anymore I will stop. I hope I get opportunities to entertain the audience. I never had milestones in my head anyway. I never expected to be part of a movie that would create history and be the highest female grossing movie ever. I’m blessed.
