Q: How did you feel on bonding with Hollywood biggies during the show?
A: I was very comfortable around John as I had met him last year, when I was prepping for ‘Quantico. Then there was Ellen Pompeo who I am fond of and have grown close to feel fortunate to be standing alongside amazing people today.
Q: How do you feel about the US's reaction on ‘Bajirao Mastani'?
A: I finally watched it two days ago. I am so glad Sanjay sir narrated the story the way he did. He portrayed Kashi (her character in the film) as a self-respecting woman whom history had chosen to forget. People in the US who have never seen a Hindi film have watched ‘Bajirao Mastani. Some have also seen ‘Barfi!' It's like introducing Hindi cinema to the West. It feels like a wonderful, cultural exchange program and I'm proud to be a big part of it.
