But it looks like the actress was all caught up the previous week. She shared all the moments from the last week as she posted thread of 10 pictures on Instagram.
In first two pictures, she is seen wearing black, knee length, floral printed one piece dress. The pictures look maybe of a press release of the film. The next picture include a still from a photoshoot.
The next one was a video of director Guna seated on a chair with a Crown filter on his head. Several photos with co-actresses and crew. A video that showed her sweating it out in the gym. The last picture, the most hilarious, is maybe of her pet dog who is lying on a bed and looking lethargic.
