SD: What has been the most rewarding experience in this field till date?

SD: Any major setbacks you had to face while trying to create a strong base?
Ramsha: Not really, my journey has been very smooth, thankfully.

Ramsha: I really wish to explore thriller or horror genres.
SD: What would you consider as a challenging role and what has been one of the most strengthening to your capabilities?

SD: What has been one of the most rewarding lessons you have been able to gain from the quarantine?
Ramsha: Definitely the fact that we take our health for granted and that we should prioritize it over anything else.
SD: Any parting words for our readers to continue to move forth and not lose focus on your passion?
