  • She learnt sign language to portray the mute character in the film “Mukkabaaz.” While sharing her experience of learning the sign language, Zoya says,

    It took a couple of months to learn sign language. I had done my research and started meeting lots of people who actually communicated this way. My sign language teacher, Sangeeta, helped me a lot with it. I wanted to learn it from scratch because that way I could improvise. A script gets very stiff when you can’t improvise and add your own emotions and reactions. I wanted to put forward the most real version of Sunaina.”
