For people to believe in you, that you will be able to pull off characters which are totally different from each other, is an achievement in itself. So I was very lucky to get a role (in Dangal) which wasn’t mainstream and help me carve a niche for myself.”
The actress further says, “But I am glad I got such a strong beginning. It required both physical as well as character preparation. The same goes for my role in Thugs… Zafar was a very strong-headed character, who was also required to have a certain set of physical skills.”
