- In an interview, while talking about her Tamil film ‘Jai Bhim’ (2021), she said,
I have often come across news about inequality and caste discrimination. But I never went in search of too many details pertaining to it. Now, I think I have seriously started looking things from the perspective of those who suffer. I’m happy I could play the character of a voiceless. I believe that my role would initiate some kinds of change in the society.”
Even now, if I see the film, I will cry. That is because I experienced her trauma and it is still there in me even now. No other character that I have played so far has affected me to the extent that this character has. Be it during dubbing or while shooting scenes like the death scene, I did not use glycerine at all. What you see on screen are all real tears. In fact, I was sobbing and I couldn’t control my tears even after the director said ‘cut’. I took a long time to get a hold on myself. There are several scenes like that in this film.”
