What is your process for choosing a film?
First and foremost, the script and the director are the most important factors for me when it comes to choosing a film. I also take my co-stars into consideration because for me, it is essential to get along with the people I work with.
In terms of your film career, what are some things you hope to achieve?
I think I have been very lucky as I have achieved certain things in my career without really expecting it. So, right now, all I want to concentrate on is working hard and doing quality work.
You also own a fashion house, tell us about that.
Vaara is my newest venture, where I will be working with people of the underserved sectors of our country. I hope to empower underprivileged workers and seamstresses through the fashion house.
