- Tell us about your personality in Azaadi?
Sonya: My personality Zara is a strong-willed British-Pakistani journalist. I assume I right away linked to her when I first study the script without a doubt because of the way she’s been written. I feel in a time where we’re all type of leaping onto this bandwagon of disturbing higher lady illustration and characterisation, there’s a lot of talking, but no longer a lot that is definitely being done. Women are nonetheless being portrayed as eye-candy in films, they are still being objectified with no substance and that’s why I haven’t signed onto any other movie after Azaadi.
2: Was it tough to play Zara’s character?
It used to be tough to shoot the film, you’ll comprehend when you watch the movie that it takes a lot to make a film like Azaadi come to life. The character, like I said, was once of a lady I immediately linked with. I assume I understood where she was coming from, what was once in her coronary heart and how I could help translate that in the front of the camera. It’s difficult in a way that I didn’t favor to mess it up because of its pertinence, however it really wasn’t an alien house for me to get into.
