Recalling one of her challenging scenes on bike, she reveals, “One of my scenes involved a thrilling bike sequence, where I had to ride a Royal Enfield, execute a sharp turn, and bring the bike to a halt. When I was cast for the role, I was asked if I could ride a bike. During the final audition, I confidently replied in the affirmative, thinking I could learn in a few days. Little did I know that the muhrat shot would demand my bike-riding skills.Upon arriving at the set, I was informed that my first shot involved riding the Royal Enfield and performing stunts. Panic-stricken, I reached out to my AD early the next morning, and we spent the morning practicing the entire sequence. Given my character’s biker background, it was crucial for me to portray this scene with authenticity which I was able to do eventually.”


Talking about what she learned from senior actor Sanjay Mishra, she mentions, “Unable to rest during the two days before my first scene, I ventured onto the set to observe Sanjay Sir’s work ethic and acting techniques. This immersion into the set’s atmosphere and the camaraderie I developed with the crew helped me approach my scenes with confidence and ease, a valuable lesson I learned from Sanjay Sir.”

“The film’s protagonist, Dhwani, is a captivating portrayal of a woman defying societal norms and pursuing her dreams. Set in the picturesque backdrop of a mountain village, the film tackles the deep-rooted patriarchal conditioning that plagues Indian society. Dhwani’s character serves as a powerful symbol of female resilience and determination, challenging the age-old tradition of prioritizing sons over daughters. Her unwavering spirit and unwavering pursuit of her passion for writing make her a role model for young women everywhere,” she tells on giving insights about her character.


Speaking about the kind of responses she’s getting so far, she concludes, “I’ve been receiving positive responses for my character, that’s what my director told me. As she got message stating that my presence resembles and reminds of veteran actress Smita Patil, which is a huge compliment I feel. She’s my idol and I feel so happy that my first film is getting such fabulous response.”
