Mumbai– Actress Aaditi Pohankar, who will be seen playing a cop in the upcoming Netlix web show “She”, says it is challenging to play the central character of Bhumika in the show.

“I believe switching characters in the same film or show is the biggest challenge an artist faces. For me, starting off as that timid and under-confident cop was tough, because that is not the kind of person I am. Then when my character transcends into being a prostitute for the undercover operation, my traits shift completely.

“Everything from my outfit, to my walk, to my posture, and even the way I talk had to change. It was a journey for me as a whole, transforming Bhumika from that shaky, low on self-esteem female cop to a lady who discovers the power she has, and isn’t afraid to use it,” Aaditi said.

Written by Imtiaz Ali, “She” is the story of a police constable, Bhumika Pardesi, who is assigned a dangerous undercover police operation in the volatile underbelly of Mumbai, and is forced to depend on her survival skills.

Why Salman Khan never moves out of his flat at Galaxy Apartments

“I love staying at my flat in Bandra over a big, luxurious bungalow because my parents live in the flat above mine. Ever since I was a child I have taken the same left turn or right turn and I would not have it any other way,” Salman had earlier said.

The “Dabangg” actor had also shared his memories attached to his house.

“The entire building is like one big family. When we were little, all the kids of the building would play together in the garden below and sometimes even sleep there. Back then, there weren’t different houses, all the houses were treated as our own and we would go into anyone’s house to eat food. I still stay in the same flat because I have countless memories attached to that house,” he had added.

In one of the old interviews, Salman’s father, who is also Legendary screenwriter, had shared his love for his flat and why he wants to live there forever.

“I am very much attached to this place. If I ever leave this house, my heart will cry. Then I won’t be able to live happily,” Salim had said.
