Rasika Dugal: I tend to feel too attached to characters I embody

Otherwise also I am an emotional person, so I feel a sense of void when the shooting gets over when I leave the character forever.  "She went on adding, "In fact, there is a joke in the family and especially with my husband, who actually gets prepared to welcome me home when I wrap a shoot. He knows that for that day, I will be constantly missing the character and the space where we shot. It is like, a part of me lived through those moments."  The short film 'Miniaturist of Junagadh' also features Raj Arjun and Padmavati Rao, along with Naseeruddin Shah.While in the film, she and Shah play father-daughter, the actress shares her experience of working with the legend.
