“I discovered so much more about her post the little screen time I shared with her, watching her TEDx speech on 'Changing Gender Discrimination in the Movie Industry'. She speaks unabashedly about the rampant sexism, casteism & ageism which exists in society and is reflected in our cinema/art & how one cannot - not be affected by an artist community which is NOT trying to challenge this narrative and an audience community which is NOT vehemently asking for that change,” the Ishqbaaz actor added. Nakuul Mehta of Ishqbaaz Fame to Star in Anurag Kashyap’s Next?
