She explained the character to me and I brought some ideas on the table which she liked a lot. From there on I started working on my character. I did some reading session with Reema and the whole cast. I am wearing police uniform for the first time in my life so I started working out to change my body. I have done an intense research on how a policeman speaks, how they work and everything about their mannerism. I have also done some dialect session and workshops as well.”
