I feel like as a fraternity we are woke and I personally would like to believe that we are more conscious than other industries, but I still feel like we aren’t doing enough.”

There are three movies lined up for the actress, ‘Mr. Lele’, ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and ‘Badhaai Do’ and it will be exciting to see her message adapted in her work.
