Mannara shared her filming experience with Anurag, Neil and Aishwarya. She says, “We shot the entire fight sequence at the Aguada Fort. I had to do harnesses for seven days. It was at the same height as the Qutub Minar.”

Neil asked, “When was your film released?” Mannara replied, “It came out in 2015.” “That was almost a decade ago,” comments Neil.

Mannara says, “But it has been an amazing journey. After that film, I got a chance to work on many more films. I was selected among 900 girls, and I had to go through an audition. There were five pages of monologues.”

She adds, “Now, talking about the character, she had seven different aspects. She started as a psychopath in the beginning, then became very sweet. But later, she became quite obsessive, even willing to harm others, yet she still looked like an angel. It was a role with a lot of variety.”

Mannara further adds, “When I went for the initial audition, I had mostly done commercials. They gave me the script in English. I was new to Mumbai at that time, so I had to quickly adapt to the language. They asked me Why am I doing this?” Was speaking in English, and I thought that I was from Delhi, where Hindi was the primary language in my school. English came later.”

She adds, “I sought advice from a friend, who noticed that the entire script was in English. So, I went back to the audition and asked for the script in Hindi, which ultimately she provided. It was a five-page script, and she told me I only had twenty minutes to prepare.”

Mannara recalls, after that “The director called me, explained the role, and invited me to audition for different characters in subsequent projects. I made a habit of auditioning for each of those characters every time.

Finally, when all the casting was complete, the director requested that we read the entire script, all 100 pages of it. I asked if we could do that on set, and the director explained that they didn’t want anyone on set holding a script.

I realized it was a good call because it rained often at the shooting location, and I found myself sitting in the mud. My character’s look was no makeup.

and being from Delhi, I didn’t know much about the intricacies of filmmaking. I used to think that acting was the only important thing and even clothes didn’t matter much. But after this film, I started to understand the importance of every detail in the filmmaking process.
