“The reason behind gifting saplings to my family, friends and colleagues comes from a very simple thought of spreading green joy on Diwali. I am a climate warrior and while I absolutely love the spirit of Diwali, the festivities and gifting our near and dear ones, I thought this year I should start by changing the way I give gifts to people,” said the actress, who will next be seen in the horror film “Durgavati”.

In the final episode of season two, Shweta’s character Golu along with Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal), kill Munna Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma).

“The scene that really impacted me was the last scene of season two. We were building that anger and frustration that we’ve been carrying, like ‘aaj badla lenge’! We all were so high on emotions that we didn’t eat. There was a moment when Ali and Munna (Divyendu Sharma) and I just hugged and cried. I think everybody on the set felt that emotion,” Shweta said.

Talking more about the role, Shweta said: “I think it’s the last scene of episode one where Golu makes her first kill. Three cups were kept in front of me with fake blood with mashed bananas and chunks of apples to create the feel of flesh and I had to target them. My real emotions surfaced when I went for it and a chunk of banana went straight into my eye.”

Asked how the show will transform in the future, Rasika Dugal said her character “Beena will be a matriarch and Mirzapur will be a matriarchal society.”

Mithula, who earned her stripes working in the web series “Little Things” and the rom-com film “Karwaan”, features with Kajol in the upcoming film “Tribhanga”. The film marks the directorial debut of actress Renuka Shahane.

“I’ve grown up watching Kajol and, of course, I had a fan moment knowing that I would share screen space with her. I am a nineties kid and she is all about the nineties. We have all grown up watching her. I was a little intimidated just by the thought, though not because she made me feel that way. The ice was broken the minute we met on the set. Her laughter is infectious, she laughs a lot. She just keeps the energy happy. Woh dil se hasti hai, dil khol ke bolti hai (she laughs freely, speaks freely). She is who she is and I love her,” said the young actress.

Mithila became an internet sensation after the Marathi version of the “Cup Song”. Recalling the experience, she said: “It was absolutely surreal. I wasn’t sure of what was happening. I didn’t know what going viral was. My phone kept hanging. People were tagging me and I kept getting calls from journalists the next day. I’m still taking it in.” (IANS)
