She was talking about 2018-2019 as she witnessed very lows after the success of Vicky Donor. “ I told my mother if films doesn’t work I would come back home. I am happy with acting and the kind of roles I am offered, but the process tests you- the people, the process, and the unspoken culture notions”. She explained she is not able to “market” herself. Why do you have to tell people that you are a good actor? But for the longest time, I was told to socialize. This isn’t bad but why do I need to go to parties just to get more work? If you like it- go ahead, I am not judging at all”
