  • Since she was a child, she was interested in dancing and acting.
  • In an interview, she said that worked in a 9 to 5 job for a few years, but that was never her dream. She wanted to do acting and modelling for which she even joined theatre for a few years. In an interview, she talked about how theatre has changed her life and said,

    Acting came as a magical-floating tube in my river-raft kind of life that saved me and kept me afloat in my endless abyss of self doubt and confusion. It has given me shelter and refuge, when I was on the run from being who I am, or trying to figure out my place in the scheme of things. The ability to act has given my angst, sorrow, happiness, desolation, meaninglessness, and energy, a sense of purpose and expression. It has given me the strength to say things that I might never have had the courage or the cockiness to express.”

  • In an interview, she said that she worked hard to get a role in the film and that being an online content creator is not the only thing that has helped her. In the interview, she further said,

    I don’t know what particularly works for people to get into OTT platforms and I know that if you are a good actor and you crack an audition, your online presence helps. Channels narrow down to taking you as opposed to a social media celebrity, but as I said there are no rules, sometimes they actually prefer not taking popular faces as long as you are a good actor.”

  • In an interview, she said that when she was doing her first film Tau Jhagdu, the name of her character was changed from Chidiya to Moti because she was really fat at that time.
