I think she has a lot to offer and her talent as an actor is yet unexplored. We have done a lot of prep back in Mumbai to portray the character and shoot the film in a certain way. While we progress in that direction there is compete understanding of the individual roles we play in filming it. Her look has been planned in a certain way, her body language, the way she speaks, everything has been carefully designed.”
