An actor’s job is to say these lines in a manner that he/she believes in it. If there’s a situation where my interpretation of a character or a scene is different, I add to it. But I try to seamlessly blend into the scene and give my 100% to what I do. Right now I am talking to you and I can’t hear anything else. I feel a sense of calm between ‘action’ and ‘cut’; it’s meditative,” she had told a daily.
