You have a de­gree in Fi­nance and Mar­ket­ing so how did show­biz come your way? It was monotony, and a sense of be­ing re­duced to a robot that brought about a change in my ca­reer. I was work­ing over­seas and I had strict bound sched­ules to work around so it was not a fea­si­ble place to be in. I never felt ex­cited so I de­cided to quit it and move to Mum­bai. That was eight years ago and since I’ve moved here, it seems life has changed one day at a time. From be­ing a suc­cess­ful an­chor to be­com­ing an ac­tor, how has the process been? I don’t see it to be very dif­fer­ent be­cause it’s the same spec­trum of en­ter­tain­ment. It’s just that as an an­chor I ex­press what I want to say in that mo­ment and as an ac­tor, I am still ex­press­ing but I am ex­press­ing via the medium of a char­ac­ter. I think the free­dom of ex­pres­sion in act­ing for me is far more. So I’ve al­ways seen both of them go hand in hand. How was it work­ing in Sul­tan with Sal­man Khan? For me, it’s a lot of fun when I’m work­ing with Sal­man be­cause you get pampered to a dif­fer­ent level. It was also my sec­ond film with him so he kept mak­ing fun of me be­cause in my first film I worked as a maid so he would al­ways laugh and say, “Dekho, maid ko kitne achhe kapde pehna diye iss film mein.” So it was re­ally lovely to work with Sal­man Could you tell us about your up­com­ing web­series Sa­cred Games? I had the great for­tune of work­ing along­side Nawazud­din Sid­diqui, I play his love in­ter­est in the se­ries. It’s a very crit­i­cal and twisted char­ac­ter and I can surely say that it’s a char­ac­ter that has never been at­tempted by a fe­male ac­tor in the busi­ness. If I’m not wrong, no­body has done it be­fore. So I am su­per thrilled about it and ex­tremely happy that through my se­ries of au­di­tions, Anurag Kashyap was able to see that I could de­liver the kind of char­ac­ter he was search­ing for. Fi­nally, what is your dream project, is there any ac­tor or di­rec­tor you want to work with in par­tic­u­lar? I think I’d like to be in­spired as much as I can so I don’t want to be like ‘Hey, I want to work with you or I don’t want to work with you’. I want to work with as many peo­ple and as many projects that come my way. Also, I am too young to have my dream project; so I don’t have a dream project yet! But ev­ery project is go­ing to take me one step closer to it.
