She shared being all okay with it and understands the emotional connection the audience had with Saumya Tandon.


She was quoted saying “It’s already coming my way even when people haven’t seen my work as Anita. However, I understand that the criticism comes from an emotional space. People have been emotionally connected to Saumya, and it’s like letting a new person come in your inner group. Just like any other new relationship, this too would take some time.” Being pessimistic about the audience will accept her, she wants to give space to her audience to find a connection with her.
