“I only wanted to be an actress since I was a child! I have always enjoyed watching people in different situations. If I get really fascinated by any character, be it onscreen or offscreen, I tend to subconsciously behave like that person and that can be anything! Maybe the hand gestures, maybe the walk, the way they talk, the way they eat, the way they sigh, it can be the slightest of the mannerisms. So, for me, being an actor comes naturally,” says Shalini.

Good content has always given me an adrenaline rush and I’m glad to be a part of a project that has excited me to perform out of my skin each day on set,” says Shalini.
