Even as her film Judaa Hoke Bhi is gearing up for a virtual release, Aindrita Ray is keeping away from the promotions. Reason being that her priority is to help husband Diganth, a known Kannada actor, recover after he suffered a neck injury during their holiday in Goa last month. Aindrita said, “I feel a bit disheartened that I couldn’t be there to physically promote Judaa Hoke Bhi. But sometimes circumstances are not in our hands. I can’t wait for the day the film opens for the audience though.”

It’s so different, and that’s what makes our dynamic so fun together,” she has been quoted as saying. In an earlier interview, Mindy revealed that working with Priyanka not only gave her a different perspective of India, but also changed the love and understanding she feels for the country.
