- How has life changed post Dhadak?
During the making of Dhadak, and even after we finished shooting for it and before its release, there was so much going on, and so much to focus on. I think, even during the making, there was a lot of creative outlet about which I still feel the void. But, I think that’s the only major change I feel.
- Will we be seeing you working with you father in any of his upcoming films?
If he ever chooses to direct a film, and wants me to play a role in it, of course I would love to be a part of it. But I think I have to earn that right and earn that opportunity. If he thinks I am worthy, then I would love to do it
- Your chemistry with Ishaan Khatter had become the talk of the town, both, on and off screen. If you had to point out a quality about him that you really love, what would it be?
I like his passion towards his work and not just work, he is passionate about everything that he does.
- So much success and love for your first film Dhadak. How does that make you feel as an actor?
It is extremely humbling, and I am so thankful. At the same time, it makes me feel motivated to do more and to give more with whatever I do in the future. I want to give this my everything, because there is nothing more important to me than to grow as an actor. I want to entertain the audience and move the audience. I’ll always continue to aspire to do just that.
- You have been on a roll post Dhadak’s release, from being the face of top-notch fashion and cosmetic brands and magazines, to walking the ramp for renowned designers, Do you think you have become a star?
No, I don’t think I have become a star. All of this is just a consequence of Dhadak and the film doing well. Also, it’s a result of the family I belong to. Maybe to some percent people have hopefully liked the work that I have done. I don’t think this qualifies me as a star at all. I’m here to be an actor. My focus is to act and do good films, and that will always be my motive. Even though I am thankful to have got all these opportunities, I think it’s a big deal and it’s been a lot of fun. It’s been an amazing and interesting experience to be a part of all of this.
- You are doing one more film with Dharma – Takht. What direction does that give to your journey as an actor?
I think every film you do, as an actor, adds to your journey. This is such a different role and a different film set in a different time period. I am a huge admirer of history and the period this film is set in, I have always had a fascination for it. So, I am very interested. It will add to my journey, not only as an actor, but also as a human being, just as every film does. I am extremely excited for Takht.
