"Shasha adds to my exclusivity..."
What role you are playing in the film? I play the character of Shasha. She sings on the cruise of Goa. She is extrovert, fun-loving, ambitious, believes in herself and wants to achieve whatever she has desired for.

Did you undergo any training or workshop? Yes, I learnt the accent and way of speaking, behaving of Goan girls. Infact all the starcast attended the workshop before the film went on floors.
What according to you is the U.S.P of the film and what will make audience to go and watch the film? This film has all those elements which the audience wants and loves these days. It has thriller, romance, love, everything. According to me the U.S.P of the film is the presentation.
Apart from you there are two more female actors in the film. How was your rapport with them? We belonged to same age-group and therefore had loads and loads of fun on the sets of the film. One can witness the rapport when they go and watch the film.
How was the experience to work with director Ramesh Khatkar? It was an immense pleasure to work with him. He is a passionate film-maker. His dedication comes across from his work.
Your upcoming films DADDY COOL and TOSS are my upcoming films. And both of films are releasing together.
How you are feeling when both of your films are releasing back-to-back? I am keeping my fingers crossed. Let's hope for the best. I am nervous about audience response.
What kind of characters you like to play? I love playing all kinds of roles. That brings my versatility across. Being an actor I feel comfortable playing all kinds of roles with several shades. Be it AWARA PAGAAL DEWANA or SHOOT OUT AT LOKHANDWALA.
