Shonali and her vision is the one thing that drew each one of us.”
In another video, PC can be seen opening about death of her father. “I lost my father a few years ago and I don’t think there was any understanding for me of how to deal with that grief. So it kind of stayed with me as a companion. But through this movie and through Shonali’s perspective…”
