How are you bringing in your birthday this year?
For my birthday this year, I climbed up to Tirupathi on foot with my aunt and a friend. I think we all need the blessings of the gods at a time when we are just breathing free again after the pandemic. Also, visiting Tirupathi was something my mother loved doing with my Dad. So here I am in Tirupathi. Tomorrow will be a quiet family dinner. I get nervous and anxious on birthdays because of the way they are hyped by those around me. That’s why I like to keep it quiet, lie low and just spend it with loved ones over a nice meal.
What has the film industry taught you during the past four years since your debut? Are you wiser now?
I have honestly learned a lot during these years. Of course, not everything went as per plan…when it does ever! But I am so thankful for the experiences and the interesting people I’ve met during the past few years. I don’t know about wiser. But I’ve grown up. I don’t think I’m as naïve as I used to be. I hope I’m better at processing the world around me.
How much did the pandemic affect your life?
Nothing went according to plans. The pandemic postponed, delayed, shelved projects. This whole OTT movement since the pandemic has changed the equation between the artiste and the audience. There’s a shift in the way the artiste works and the way audiences see films.
Tell me about your forthcoming projects?
I have finished two projects one for my Dad called Mili and another for Aanand Rai sir called Good Luck Jerry. I am very excited about both. I’ve started prepping for Mr & Mrs. Mahi. There are a few other projects in the pipeline. It’s all looking very fulfilling, provided everything goes according to plan.
If you had to change one thing in your life, what would it be?
I don’t want to change anything. I am happy with my life. I am grateful for all the opportunities that I get and for all the people in my life. I think I am the luckiest girl in the world. I hope God gives me the strength to do everything that will make my parents proud.
That’s a perfect answer !!!
