She has done theatre in Mumbai and Kolkata for several years and is an established classical dancer. She has a great figure, but that does not mean there is any nudity in my film. The PR agent goofed up in her enthusiasm to get the news published, causing great harm to my project. They even spelt the lead actress’ name incorrectly. We are making this film at a budget of over ₹100 crore. It is a big budget film and will be screened both in India as well as, all over the world. It is in two versions – one for the Hollywood market in English, and the other, is its edited version for the Indian market,” David explained.

She is trained Bharat Natayam and Kathak dancer, and has given about 250 Indian classical performances till date.
