“I played the other woman in O Re Manwa. It was from the point of view of the other woman and it was treated with dignity, which otherwise you don’to see because the other woman is always seen with contempt,” Sakshi said, adding, “In Bawara Mann, I play two characters in one shot — a writer, played by Nishikant Kamat. I personify his thinking and I also play a bored wife whose hubby has no time for her.”
