"That whole sequence, we shot over two or three days in that hut. And as an actor -- I really don't know how people are going to react to this information -- but I didn't shower for two days, for that sequence. And that location was filthy. When I used to finish the day of shoot and go back home, I used to be covered with mud. My hair was white because of the dust. I never used to clean. I would go back, sleep, come the next day to shoot, in that filth."
The actress adds that while she is not a method actor, she wanted to look ‘destroyed’ but not with the help of make up. During the shooting, she wondered if she was overdoing it, but after watching the film she thought it was worth it.
