Mumbai: Diya Aur Baati Hum actress Kanika Maheshwari says while shooting for her first short film, which deals with the “sensitive mother-daughter relationship”, she started crying hysterically.
She has written and produced the film titled Forever Whim. It tells the story of a mother-daughter relationship with the former getting diagnosed with cancer.
Kanika said, “This movie is not about a patient fighting an illness. It touches upon the sensitive mother-daughter relationship. I remember this particular scene, where I have to record a video diary and look composed, I started crying hysterically and nothing could stop me.”
“So, the director decided to go ahead with that shot. I was emotionally drained during the entire writing process. I could feel the pain as my own. I kept thinking about my son,” she added.
