There are absolutely no roles written for women in which there is an acknowledgement of their sexuality”. The actress added in another interview, “Women often get ignored from the main narrative, especially in films. In Mirzapur, the tracks of all the women are interesting”.

The format of a web show or series concept is very interesting from a writing point of view. It has given a lot of writers opportunities to explore characters and plots.
The web welcomes content which is path-breaking and pushes boundaries. The kind of scripts I have read for web shows has been outstanding. I have had the opportunity to act in two- Mirzapur, which is a kind of role I have not done before and I am excited about that. It is totally different from Manto. So, from Manto to Mirzapur is one full transformation”.
