She is not a negative character rather she is just a women with big dreams and is carried away by the worldly pleasures of life which makes her do things without thinking about the repercussion that comes along with it.”

So, sometime when you have to enact a scene which is intense, it’s emotionally draining and challenging, for me at least. As an actor, I believe keeping our personal bias and feelings aside is important and sticking to the story is essential .”
