On finding inspiration from ideal Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan & Kareena Kapoor Khan for her upcoming transformation from Bahu and deciding to be a lawyer in SNS2, Sneha says “For an actor, an unusual change in script or role is said to be difficult as they demand maturity and composure at the same time. Though, when I received the brief about the upcoming sequence, I instantly knew whom I’d to look up to and that was none other than quintessential Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan & Kareena Kapoor Khan as their roles in their respective movies Pink and Aitraaz were perfect examples for me to seek inspiration from. The similarities in all the three characters helped me gain a lot of confidence and composure. All I hope is that the audience gets touched and moved by this new journey in the show.”
