The actor talked about her inclination toward politics, and she had a candid reply. “I have been part of Upendra’s Prajakeeya since its inception, and we are always bouncing ideas to each other. For the longest time, when I first met him, he had expressed his desire to serve people, and not meant to entertain them. He always wants to work towards bringing a change in society. I have always had a voice when it came to women’s issues, and education, which is mostly done through the foundation. That’s how this subject caught my interest, she says.
