Tell us honestly, how did you first react when you were offered the role of a transgender [for Sacred Games]?

I was excited! In fact, we finished filming before Nanette came out and when I saw it, I felt more proud.

And what’s the most bizarre reaction you’ve got for doing this role…?

Someone I used to work with sent me a clip of my coming out scene, from a porn site, and said ‘nice acting.’ Bizarre because it was from a porn site!

One life lesson you’ve learnt because of this…?

There’s heart and soul in everyone, and we need to respect people’s choices.

Kubbra recently played the transgender girlfriend Kukoo to the protagonist in Sacred Games

One song that’s on your mind right now…?

Kiki Do You Love Me by Drake.

Pick one to kill, marry, friendzone –

Nawazuddin Siddiqui:Marry
Ranveer Singh: Kill

One actor you want to go on a date with…?

Huma Qureshi, as we’re both Nawazuddin’s eternal lovers!

Your Tinder bio would be...?

“Likes belly rubs, has the loudest laugh, and curly hair damsel not in distress.”
