  • During an interview, she shared an incident while shooting for the Hindi film ‘The Kashmir Files’ in 2022. She said,
    There has often been talk of this brutal massacre at home. When the scene of cutting me with a saw was being shot in the shooting, my health got very bad. I could not see the difference between reel and real life. My BP got low and I started having trouble breathing. After completing the scene, I  sat in a corner. At the same time, another scene was being filmed, where people were being shot by standing together. Vivek sir had cast Kashmiri Pandits there. When they were being shot with bullets, I started shouting there and started saying don’t kill my people. I  had forgotten that acting was happening. The production team came to me and consoled me. Even Vivek sir came. I was not breathing at that time, I had panic attack. I could not understand how my life would be saved. Then I was sent back to the hotel. I stayed in the hotel room for three days and did not talk to anyone. However, after that I felt very embarrassed that despite being an acting coach, how could I have such a breakdown. I could not even make eye contact with the crew members.”
