I am ready to work in any industry whether its Bollywood, Hollywood, the digital platforms, South Indian film, or Bengali films. Wherever I get a good opportunity, I'll be there.
My grandfather was wary of me being a part of the industry for various reasons, ranging from the fact that we didn't know anybody; it was an unconventional career choice, and because he felt that I needed somebody to guide me.
I always knew that I wanted to be an actor. I made my debut on stage when I was 12, and I was sure that this is what made me happy. However, nobody takes a 12-year-old's career choice seriously. Everybody laughed it off. I also ran away from it, but acting eventually found me.
I am a normal girl from a humble, middle class family.
I did science at the junior college level but switched to a bachelor's in mass media at MMK College, Bandra.
To protect my hair from breaking, I never comb my hair when it's wet.
With the amount of planned and unplanned travel I have, it is critical for me to treat my curls right on a daily basis.
I damp my hair, take 2-3 drops of serum, and apply it through the length of my hair - my hair becomes super smooth, letting me style it any way I want, and - it also gets the perfect, glossy finish.
I was 12 when I was on stage for the first time and had an epiphany that this is what I wanted to do.
I have always played the cheerful girl next door, especially on the Internet, and this film is a break from that. My character is more moody and bratty in 'Karwaan.'
I'm a hopeless romantic and a believer in handwritten letters.
I was a science student in junior college, but I knew I wouldn't pursue a career in the field.
I knew I wanted to be an actor but didn't know how to go about it. That's why my ambition, initially, was not to play a lead role in a Bollywood film.
I've never wanted to play the lead role; I make the most of whatever opportunities come my way.
I've done over 100 auditions, but I was lucky to stumble onto the Internet as it was growing. Because in film, people are not looking at casting completely unknown faces as lead roles.
At a Metro station, I got called out by my character name - Meera - and I realised that I had started responding to that quite intuitively. It was quite a funny moment.
Marathi is my mother tongue; there's a certain comfort level speaking in it.
Even when I got ₹500 a month as pocket money, I would never spend all of it. It's the same now. I am just conscious of the fact that I wasn't born with a silver spoon.
Our grandparents' generation prefers to watch film on TV rather than going to the theatre because of the simple reason that they are really old. Watching a film for, say, two hours at a stretch is difficult for them.
I do not see myself doing daily TV soaps!
