‘I don't know who's happy in Mirzapur'
GLOBAL MOVIE MAGAZINE|November 2020
"My husband Cheeta used to make me laugh before I would sleep because he knew I would get nightmares. I used to get nightmares that I was in the Mirzapur family and there was an attack!" The young actress admits that the series did take a toll on her. "As an actor, I’m very satisfied with the experience I have got. But would I want anybody to have Golu’s life? NO!" she says emphatically. Part 1 of a lively interview!

‘That climax in the last episode of Season one, I have replayed it so many times that it is still fresh in my mind.’

‘If you have a wound and if you keep picking on it, it will never heal.’

You have so many releases this year. Are you happy with the way your career is going?

I’;m very happy!

Haramkhor was the first film I shot, but it released many years later. That’s when I learnt that karm karo, fal ki icha mat karo.

Even Cargo released after two years.

But still, I would love to do independent cinema because if my being in a project can increase its value then I would want to do it.

I didn’t expect much from my character in Raat Akeli Hai, but the love and appreciation I got was overwhelming.

Gone Game was shot entirely during the lockdown. It was shot in my house and my husband was shooting me!

The director was in a Zoom call throughout.

From lighting, to makeup, hair, everything, we did at home. I had to have whiskey in my glass, so we put water and apple juice... we were the head of department for all departments. I had so much fun doing it.

The reviews were also good.

And now, the baap of them all, Mirzapur, is out.
