I learnt about the incident which everybody knows that happened in 2011. So, I faintly had an idea and then started digging more online while prepping for my role. After going through the script of the entire six episodes from the series, everything was very detailed and well written. So, the only research which I did for couple of weeks was literally going on ground. We did field work where I was assisted by Ankur Pathak, and I was shadowing a ground reporter. I also went to police stations, jails and saw criminals. It was interesting to see the conversation between journalists and cops. I understood the body language and Ankur Pathak gave me a lot of information about how the newsroom is. The character was beautifully written in the script so while doing the scenes I was able to understand the emotions.”

Since, I come from an orthodox Gujarati family, so they used to say ‘ladka padia hua to ye karega aur ladki paida hui to aisa (if a boy was born then there were different expectations from him as compared to a girl).’ So, we used to get that second-hand treatment and I have faced that in my joint family. Since, childhood I had this in me that I have to become a man. It is stupid to say that I have to compare myself to another gender. But I wanted to become independent and show the world that I can be at par with a male, have my own dreams and keep my family happy. So, I relate to this character a lot because Karishma is also the same in real life.”

So, the sense of responsibility was extreme. Also, it was impressed by the e-book so there have been lot of ranges and graphs throughout the script. Compared to my totally different roles it was very tough on account of I’ve in no way carried out such a hard and highly effective character. I’m participating in a women-centric operate after a really very long time. Generally, I’ve seen such form of roles in television. TV has additional of female-driven characters, whereas OTT and theatrical releases are sometimes male-centric. Now, it has started that women-oriented roles are highlighted. So, after I acquired right here all through this script, I was very overwhelmed and nervous on the same time. I was very fully glad to work with Netflix and Hansal Mehta, so it was like a dream come true for me.


On being quizzed what message the actress has for the audiences wanting forward to watching Scoop, she concludes by saying, “I just want people to love this show and binge watch it.
