Saiyami Kher on Ghoomer
In an interview with News18 Showsha, Saiyami Kher was asked about how she emotionally connected with the character in Ghoomer during the trying times. She said: “This has been one of the most emotionally exhausting experiences for me in terms of the roles I’ve taken on. It has truly drained me, as I’ve never encountered anything quite as traumatic in my life.”
She added, “Consequently, I had to dig deep within myself to portray this character. Besides that, I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with many para-athletes and understand their journey. I think that helped me the most in my journey of becoming Anina.”
She also said that it was physically challenging for her to be a left-hander since she is a natural right-hander. “I had to learn to play cricket with my non-dominant hand”, she added.
