A new trend in Bollywood is here; nowadays we see actresses in movies are portrayed with an extrovert image while guys are the subdued and sober. What do you have to say about it?
No. it depends upon the story of the film. Yeah there are few films that are made and there is no harm in portraying that. It depends upon the need of the script.
How much do you relate to your character in this film?
