Speaking further, Sneha enumerated a spectrum of challenging roles from her illustrious career. She articulated, "For me, when I play any part, body language is very important to portray the character. Makes a lot of difference. Be it a Jyoti who fights and struggles with and for the family (Jyoti). Ratan goes and does farming and drives a tractor after her husband leaves her with two little kids (Veera). A Queen Mother, Maharani Mura, also goes and fights in war for the nation (Chandragupta Maurya). A high-class businesswoman named Amba fights the whole world for her one-sided love (Na Umra Ki Seema Ho) or a Protima who belongs to a remote red-light district in Sonagachi and wants a better and more respectful life for her daughter (Neerja). All these characters and many more."
