Having started with TV five years back, followed by back-to-back shows, Mukherjee feels it’s time for her to do relatable content.

But, me being an explorer by nature, I can go far to find out ways to try and experiment with something really different. It a short life and being an actor, I want to try all mediums and get to characters that are exceptionally challenging,” says actor who has been part of shows like Jhalli Anjali and Twist Wala Love.
