Delhi girl Taapsee who is playing the role of a molestation victim in the social thriller says , “Pink is closest to me in real life. There is the same independent streak, even the body language is of a typical Delhi girl. What I understood during the process is the kind of trauma a victim goes through, how they are ‘molested’ once again in courts.”

The actress who is a known name in Tollywood was also happy to work in a film where she did not need a translator to convey the meaning of the dialogues to her. She added, “Knowing the language really helped. I started loving my job once I began doing Bollywood films. It was nice for once not to wait for your lines. I always told people I knew to act, but only now do they tell me ‘oh, so you can act’. I am like raw dough that can be moulded in any way. Thankfully, I am getting better opportunities now.”
