What was the emotion you were going through while portraying the character?
Honestly, I am very much like Kinjal in my everyday life. Yes, we all have such days, reminding you about some toxic moments, that is also how I navigated this character.
Was it emotionally very challenging and exhausting to play the part or do the sequence?
As an actor you have to feel the character, be one with it. So naturally you experience the same pain, confusion, all emotions.
Do you feel we need stricter laws for women?
I have maintained this always, we need to break away from gender stereotypes. Stricter laws for all workplaces should be a norm. Everyone needs to feel safe.
Your character in the beginning is seen not taking a stand for herself? What do you want to say to the girls and women out there?
We are all humans, even the strongest of individuals have days when they feel vulnerable. Kinjal is human and vulnerable. Also the fact that she does take it up with her family is a message to all girls and women out there that it is OK to be vulnerable and it is OK to discuss these things.
As girls, women we all have faced something of this kind in our day-to-day life be it at work place, school or our day-to-day life. Have you ever faced something like this in your personal life?
No Industry is void of such experiences. We are all bullied at some point in our lives. From the time we are born, to school, work, family.
Do you feel we still lack gender equality in our country? And it is the need of the hour?
The need of the hour is talking about these things in the public domain. Have educated and informative discussions. I think that is exactly what our Show Anupama did. Take these discussions across millions of households in our Country.
