Actor Kashmira Pardeshi is seen essaying the role of Aliya in The Freelancer. An emotionally challenging role, Kashmira decodes her preparations for the character and how it impacted her.
Talking about the same, Kashmira Pardeshi said, “So, what has happened to Aliya has not happened to me incidentally, not in exactly those circumstances. But there came a patch where we shot all the interiors at a length where Aliya has gone through so much pain. And, when I started replaying these emotions back to back for a week or ten days for that schedule, it did put me in an anxious state. There were a few nights I couldn't sleep, I used to be in a state of fear for small things and I didnt realize this until much later that it's because I have been in that state for a while. But yeah, I did experience that with Aliya.”
The Freelancer is set to stream 1st September 2023 onwards on Disney+ Hotstar.ALSO READ: Sara Ali Khan just confirmed Ananya & Aditya dating on 'Koffee With Karan 8'; Panday responds
