Standing up for something she believes makes her a very powerful and fearless person. It is surely going to be entertaining and surprising at the same time, as the audience finds out what actually happened between Jo and Zahira. While I believe in non-violence, and I’ve never slapped anyone ever, slapping was a new experience for me as an actor. It first happened in Gully boy when Alia and I totally went for the fight. It was so fresh and so so exciting for me!”
