Talking about if she is approached for playing Dayaben, will it be challenging for her, to which she replied that comedy is natural for her, yet it would be challenging but not difficult. And for the Gujju accent of the character, she’ll have to learn. She added that they are actors and have to play different characters.
When questioned about if she would like to play the character in her own way, the Hum Paanch actress was quoted saying, “I will have to take a lot of nuances from her style and include mine. I will have to do a good merger. If I do it entirely my way, it might be difficult for the audiences to relate to it.”
In one of her earlier interviews, the Dekh Bhai Dekh actress mentioned that she took a break from acting due to her “marriage break up.”
