In her first web-series, she had played a fierce role where she was shown as a potty-mouth cop in “Flesh” that is streaming on Eros Now. In her second web-series, she played the role of a teacher who tempted as in an adult comedy “Rasbhari” that is streaming on Amazon Prime Video. In her current web-series, she has dominated the female-fronted scene. As we can see web platforms have transformed stories about women.
I played a cop character in “Flesh” that people normally see being played by male actors. Such roles are shown to be more edible when played by male actors. I played a young woman who portrays her life in “Bhaag Beanie Bhaag”. It is comparatively as “Wake up Sid” for girls. This movie stated to Ranbir Kapoor who played a rich, fortunate 20- somewhat determining his own voice in Mumbai.
