I was just over the moon. I can’t even describe what it feels like. I was just screaming with joy.”

She added, “The first thing I wanted to do was talk to Richie (Mehta), but he, of course, wouldn’t be free. So, I just texted him and I said whenever you have the time or we can talk later.” “I was excited and wanted to share it with my family, friends and the team.”

If I had the craft of acting, I probably wouldn’t have been good at it. But, I follow my instinct, my gut and my natural reaction. What I showed was what I felt. For me, it was not about acting or becoming it, I just had to be her. There’s no other way I know how to do this.”

Shefali added, “We all felt so strongly when the Nirbhaya case happened, so all that anger and frustration and the need for justice, all of that was pent up and held back inside all of us. It was a scar that was never going to heal. Over here, I could express all of it.”
