This is exciting for me and I definitely want to explore it in the near future. I think I will have a lot of fun doing this. I am really looking for an action film and hope to find something needed.”
She adds, “The world of films is like an oyster for me and there is a lot for me to explore here. I am very lucky that I have got to do a variety of films. The year 2022 is going to be full of characters for me. “

I will definitely find myself acting.” But is that the only thing I would do? Definitely not!”
She adds, “There are so many things I am passionate about. Running my own business is one of them. I don’t know how to diversify myself. I don’t know if I am going to be a producer. I don’t know if I will be an entrepreneur or not. But I am definitely going to act and become a climate activist.”
