“I am waiting for Rakeysh sir to give me a script, where I would love to be a swimmer because I am hydrophobic and just the way he has mentioned in his book where he just pushed his son in the water to get over his fear of water, I would need him to push me as well in the pool or ocean, as I would just like to get-rid of my fear” added actress.
