It is directed by Gopi Purthan and was released today. On being asked how it was working in a Yash Raj Film, Tejasvi said, “It was an enriching experience in many ways. Working with the disciplined Rani ma’am and playing the role of Latika has taught me so much about film making and acting. There was a lot of emotional preparation required before the scene because it was a very sensitive role.” According to her, the movie shall give a very strong message especially pertaining to the recent scenario in India where violence against women is on the rise. “I wanted to be an actor since childhood and, now, seeing myself on the big screen is so overwhelming,” Singh said about her debut in Mardaani 2. Tejasvi is daughter of Sunita Singh who runs a rehabilitation centre in Doon for alcoholics.
