The actress will be seen sporting an edgy look, said to be inspired by Jessica Alba's onscreen avatar of Max Guevera, a genetically enhanced super-soldier, from the science-fiction TV show Dark Angel.

Apart from working on the Inside Edge 2 in Mumbai , Chadha has also been working on a biopic of the south Indian adult film star Shakeela Khan in Tirthahalli, a small town in Karnataka. Her appearance in both the projects are in contrast to each other. The first look of Shakeela showed Chadha flaunting a traditional white Kerala saree with a golden border while in the web-series she has bold make-up and is dressed in black, reflecting the powerful character she will portray onscreen.

Inside Edge 2 is scheduled to premiere on Amazon Prime Video in mid-2019.
