'I play a virtuous Buddhist girl'
I play a Buddhist girl called Devi in Asoka. She is the epitome of all the virtuous Buddhist qualities. She in some way is also associated with the transformation Ashoka goes through.
I was on Shekhar Suman's talk show called Movers and Shakers when the associate director of the film spotted me. He thought I was good enough to play the role.
Shah Rukh is a great co-star, extremely helpful. I did not have too many scenes with Kariena, so our interaction was limited. Santosh Sivan is an ace cameraman and a good director.
Asoka will be my first release, so I am naturally looking forward to it. Though Shararat will be my first release as the leading lady. Asoka was the first film I signed on, Shararat came to me a few days later.
