I loved every stage of becoming Sugandha — from researching 19th century devdasis… to rediscovering the mythology of our epic heroines, to gaining seven kilos, to wearing Navwari saris continuously (even to go watch Spider-Man)!

Ironically, Sugandha’s journey mirrors the trials of all the archetypal Indian women she posed as.
