I get to enact various characters, learn different languages, grasp many new skills, and most satisfyingly understand society. Bombay Begum’s cast was the ecstatic moment for me when I met such senior & reputed actors who always used to encourage me to give my best. I am always thankful to Singaporean Cinema for being kind to me and this is the reason why I ventured into more serious roles. When I get any offer, I firstly challenge myself for the character I want to play. I get many offers for TV shows as well as for movies. I am also asked to choose between TV & Films. My answer to such a question will always remain the same. A character, whether for a TV Show or a Film, when played dedicatedly, uniquely, the efforts of the actor always gets a highlight & I am truly ready to accept any challenge for any character in my life. I want to be successful in every role I am playing. Well, the Web is currently the new normal for both movies and TV Shows. Bombay Begums was an engaging web series in which I have accepted the challenge of the role and tried my level best to justify my role in it.”
