Mrunal Thakur talks about the toughest part of acting

In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Mrunal was asked about the toughest part of acting and she replied, "If you are not in sync, that magic won’t happen. What is difficult is when a movie ends and when you come back home, it feels like a heartbreak. It’s like, I love those characters and I’ll never get to be them."

She further added, "This heartbreak is actually crazier than an actual romantic heartbreak. There are days when I am just like, I don’t know what to do. If there’s one character that I want to be, it's Sita Mahalaxmi. So, the most difficult part is to move on, because for me, I have lived through those characters and someone just told me that I need to leave those characters behind, Mrunal. I am trying to do so, and that is the toughest part."



Mrunal Thakur opens up about rejections and struggles

The Jersey actress further opened up about the rejections and struggles that she has faced in her career to date. Mrunal said, "I want to say thank you to all the people who rejected me, because that made me realize that I was not good enough then. But because I got rejected, I made myself good enough now. So, in my head, I was like something wasn’t there in me then."

The actress went on to add, "I would be lying if I said that I am not a competitor, I am. I want to learn, and there is nothing wrong with you; it's just the qualities that we lack for a character at a particular time. I want to thank all filmmakers because rejection is so important and it makes you who you are."
