Excited about playing Dawood Ibrahim's sister Haseena in her biopic?
Yes, I am. It's a powerful role, a great script and a story which will translate very well on screen. I am looking forward to getting into character for this one.

Were you, even at any point, skeptical about being a part of the film?
Initially, because of the sensitive subject. That's when I went to my dad for advice and he said as an actor, this kind of a role is a rarity. He was the one who encouraged me to do it.

More and more roles for women are being written and played out. Agree?
Yes, I totally agree. It's a great shift as audiences have become keen to see different kinds of films on screen.
