How and when did your tryst with act­ing theatre hap­pen?

I have al­ways en­joyed be­ing on stage. My per­son­al­ity to a large ex­tent was groomed by be­ing up there. Theatre is like an ex­er­cise for all the artists which refines you.

Have you al­ways wanted to be­come an ac­tress?

Yes, for as long as I re­mem­ber I al­ways wanted be an ac­tress. In fact, I was ad­dressed as the drama queen in the house by my flat­mates. And I com­pletely en­joy be­ing called by that ti­tle!

How was the ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with noted theatre ac­tors like Ratna Pathak Shah?

Ratna ma’am is a lady of few words. She made me ex­tremely com­fort­able on the set. I was at awe while I was work­ing with her. Her ex­pe­ri­ence showed in her per­for­mance.

What can be ex­pected from the sec­ond sea­son of In­side Edge?

Too much drama and too many scams! It’s go­ing to be com­pletely packed with thrills and sus­pense mak­ing it very en­ter­tain­ing.

Tell us about your char­ac­ter in In­side Edge 2.

My char­ac­ter has dif­fer­ent lay­ers and shades of sus­pense. You will have to wait to see it!

Do you plan to ex­per­i­ment with main­stream Bol­ly­wood cinema? Or do you wish to con­tinue do­ing theatre?

I love be­ing in front of the cam­era and that’s one place I al­ways want to be in. You will see me in main­stream Bol­ly­wood cinema very soon!

What other fu­ture projects will we see you in?

Cur­rently be­sides In­side Edge-2, I am busy with an up­com­ing theatre show and am si­mul­ta­ne­ously shoot­ing for other projects. So, yeah, my hands are full at the mo­ment and I am ex­cited for that!
