"Having grown up around my great grandmother (Ratanbai Shilotri) and grandmother (Shobhna Samarth), it was almost like reliving a part of my own history. It felt like I had dressed up in my mother’s clothes and played her in a grown-up way,” the actress shares. It was like reliving a part of my own history... as if I’d dressed up in my mother’s clothes and played her in a grown-up way. If I have my way, I will wear the nauvari (traditional Maharashtrian way of draping a sari) on a red carpet someday. The sari has a certain body language."
