Why did she choose this film?
It is such a beautiful, simple story and I knew it had to reach as many people as possible. It was something I’ve never done before, and it’s such an opportunity to be able to try your hand at a character like this. Mili truly made me push myself in all ways possible – emotionally, mentally, physically and I wouldn’t do it any other way. When I reflect, almost all my characters have a strong connection with their mother or father and I think organically that’s what moves me when I read scripts.
What message the audience take away from the film?
Mili, in her opinion, is about how far one would go for their loved ones. It shows courage, resilience and hope – and how it all dials down to family. The film explores the journey of her character in finding her own strength. But what she like audiences to do is reflect on their own relationships and strengths.
She extremely excited about the world television premiere of Mili. It's an opportunity for a wider audience to watch and connect with the film and she hope it resonates with the viewers and leaves a lasting impact. Kya bach payegi Mili? It’s time for audiences to know.
Manoj Pahwa, who plays her father in the film, is inherently caring and warm. He is a fabulous actor and not too many know how humble he is. She had so many heartfelt scenes together and she truly felt a genuine bond with him. This relationship is one of the key themes of the film. It is a relationship she think is incredibly important – it is a source of comfort, strength and inspiration for me in real life.
