I played a Democrat volunteer who’s half-Indian, half-African-American in the film. I remember she gave me great advice. She had told me to try to keep the character balanced, and the film to represent both sides - the Democrats and the Republicans.” Mallika further shares Kamala ‘gives hope and a voice to the voiceless’
Also, she further shared that Kamala helped her get out of her comfort zone. She said, “I was feeling like a fish out of water in Los Angeles at that time.
