In a recent interview, she also opened up about her experiences working for different films, wishing that she would have done more work. She feels that the more one works, the better they get.

"I do films that come my way and if I feel a connection with the film. My choices also reflect on the person that I am. Having said that, it's not like I have too many opportunities coming my way. I'm making most of it with what is available around me. I would have loved to do a Gangubai Kathiawadi or a Queen, but again scripts like that should come to me, while there are not, I am doing what's best for me," she told SpotboyE.
