Mumbai– Actress Rasika Dugal expects her loved ones to be there for her in case she needs help, and similarly she would always reach out to them whenever required.
Rasika made the observation while comparing her nature with that of Dr Meera, the character she plays in “Out Of Love Season 2”.
“Meera and I are different in many ways. She is a quiet person who will try to make things work on her own before she reaches out for help. I expect people, or at least my loved ones, to be there for me and reaching out to them would be one of the first things I would do,” Rasika said.
Talking about her similarities with her on screen character, the actress said: “Meera being reckless in Out of Love Season 2 was not new to me.
