“Chhapaak”, based on the life of acid attack survivor Laxmi Agarwal, was her first film as a producer. On the kind of stories she is looking for as a producer, she shared: “My choices will always be made as an actor.

We will take it as it comes.”

She has also announced another film production — “Mahabharat”, to be made from Draupadi’s point of view.
