Edited excerpts:

How challenging was it to play a human character and did you question the feasibility of a love story with a robot?

There was no reference that I could see. We have seen robot characters who behave like robots. Desi people like Chitti are also more or less robotic. Here we are dealing with artificial intelligence. Sifra is so close to being human that humans do not even realize it. In the trailer we have already shown that he is a robot. So we are taking the audience with us; They know I am a robot in the film. The challenge was to convince myself. Sifra is almost human, but still not human. The biggest demand of the character is that you know Sifra is a robot but she still makes the audience feel for her. I hope that we have been successful in taking the audience to the world of imagination. This is cinema. The way we are progressing, a love story with robots may also happen in the future. Fifteen years ago we did not have good internet connectivity but today humanoid robot Sophia has got permanent residence in Saudi Arabia.

How did you make that?

There are some things that humans do impulsively like hand gestures while talking. I had to finish them off. Also, a robot processes things much faster. So I almost had to end the break from my thinking and expression. Coming from an engineering background, I look for logic in a given space of imagination. I was curious and questioning whether a certain gesture became too human or too robotic. A lot of things were improved on the set, like the robot is not impulsive, does not have emotional extremes, I had to keep it in between. Sometimes it felt like suffocation. It was like you had to act with your hands tied but overall it was fun.

The film seems to be a commentary on the changing idea of ​​love. How do you feel about the feeling that we are in the season of love?

It is difficult to find love stories these days because emotions have become a bit trivial and it is difficult to find conflict in romance these days. Earlier the obstacles came from family and villains. We live in a time when our heroes have become villains. Also, I think this generation has become so fast-paced that often we don't realize whether the emotion we are feeling is love or not. Love is a very deep feeling. We desire it but we touch it superficially and move on.

Why did you enter production at such a young age with 'Do Patti'? Interestingly, many prominent young female actors are entering production while male actors are not.

This could be a coincidence. For me, it's a more creative thing. It wasn't about lack of material or opportunities. while doing mm, I felt that if I like a script, I like to connect with it on a deeper level. I figured if an author was willing to travel with me, why should I wait for other people to believe my idea? I love learning and making changes in life. When I started I didn't know how to act. I've learned everything on the job.

Did the National Awards change things?

Maybe people in the industry see me as a credible actor and are coming up with more solid roles. The award has validated my talent and given me the confidence to take more risks without the fear of constantly proving myself.

Teri Baton Mein Aisa Uljha Jiya will be released in theaters on February 9.
