Even when I heard it I felt it is going to be a lot to take on my shoulder and this is my first OTT where I am playing the protagonist and all It’s all on my shoulder. It’s all very interesting as I have done 4 OTT shows now and four shows later, a complete show is definitely mounted on you and very grateful for that,” Regina told mid-day.com said while talking to

Regina plays the central character of Kavya, an IPS officer. He is spontaneous, dedicated and prime with all his missions. Kavya is appointed as the lead investigator in the ISIS-K bomb attack case, where her psychological strength is put to test. “When it came my way and I heard that Srijit Mukherjee would direct it, I was very curious to see if I could do it; It has to be seen how the show is going to be. I also play a mother and there are many aspects of the role that I thought would be interesting both as an actor and as a person that would really make me want to take the next step,” shared the actress.

In Regina’s two recent projects – ‘Sakini Dakini’ and ‘Shoorveer’, she played characters who are part of the forces. Describing all the roles as ‘quite different’, Regina said, “This is the first time I am playing a cop. In ‘Shoorveer’ I played an air force pilot. In ‘Sakini Dakini’ I am a cop. trainee. Although it’s all part of the force, there’s a lot to do, and a lot of stories to tell, I think it’s important for everyone to watch. I think it’s kind of instructive And also there is freedom where you can add to the imagination, you can add in a lot of things, so it really depends. Every filmmaker has a different way of telling a story. In ‘Sakini Dakini’ I am a 19 “I am playing a 20-year-old girl who has gone for police academy training and is young. In ‘Jaambaz’ I am playing a 34-35-year-old superintendent. It is a very different treatment. I love ‘Jaambaz’ ‘ In the first season of What Really Loved, Srijit (Mukherjee) Sir has shown the balance in Kavya Iyer’s life where a woman’s personal and professional life is in equal measure of conflict.

The show also boasts of an interesting ensemble cast Barun Sobti, Sumeet Vyas, Mita Vashisht, Gayatri Shankar, and Chandan Roy. “I think we have a great set of actors in our cast. You will see Sumeet in a completely different avatar which I am looking forward to. I think he has done complete justice to the role. Meeta ma’am, she plays the head of NIA She is top class. I was very happy working with her and we did a few scenes together. Even working with Gayatri, she is a south star. We are friends and have never been able to work together. It’s nice to see national content seeping into the South that a national audience can see. I was very fortunate to share different bonds with each and every individual.”

While Regina has some really intense scenes in the series and plays a serious character, she says she’s not one of those actors who stays in character out of action and cuts. “I’ve never been like that. I’ve always been the kind of actor who the moment the director says cut can’t be in character. Unless I’m talking or I need to talk, I’m very quiet on set.” I’m a quiet person. I’m not necessarily quiet. I don’t know, but I’m always definitely not in character. I don’t believe in that.

Regina had earlier said that it was only after the response to ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ that she realized the kind of impact cinema and actors can have on people. Asked if she is more aware of the impact of the roles she chooses, she said, “Yes, and no. For me, it’s important what I’m putting out there. This has always been the thought process behind doing anything. But I am more aware of the effect it has because as you do more work and as more people see you, you get more recognition. So yes, I am very conscious about the roles that I play. But do I now necessarily think that I’m doing this to make an impact, and it has to be? No, but I’m very careful about what I’m doing.
