Commenting on her char acter, a lesbian sports instructor who marries a gay cop (played by Rajkummar Rao), Pednekar said: “She is somebody whose life is very different from mine and that is not because of our sexual preferences, it is more about the choices one makes in life. I am somebody who has lived her life full of freedom. My character does not have that privilege.”

Pednekar continued: “It wasn’t about how I would feel about other people or the character that I am playing. It was more about how I would live my life that I could not relate a lot with. It is not as easy as going to the gym. It is more of an internal process.”

Talking about her character’s look, Pednekar said: “The director and our team members were very dear that when we look at the woman she should look like somebody who is vulnerable. So I have not shied away from not wearing makeup.
