“I was shocked because the little girl didn’t know that there are other faiths also. See the kind of radicalization that is happening there. This is very dangerous.”
Pallavi said she played negative role in the movie to expose the lies and help the truth to come out.

The actress also posted pictures of her visit to Komodo Island in Indonesia. (IANS)
