"Sanjay had seen my previous work through a video on Twitter. He liked it and asked his casting director to find out who I was and eventually I was signed on. I couldn't have asked for a better start in Bollywood. This is my dream debut," Priya said.

"It's a dream project because I'm getting to act along several popular actors at the beginning of my career," she said.

Priya was aware 'Jazbaa' is Aishwarya's comeback film and that made her really excited as well as nervous to be part of the project.

"When I was approached for the project, I knew Aishwarya was part of it. When Sanjay narrated the synopsis, that's when I came to know Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi are also part of the project. I was quite excited and equally nervous," she said.

"I'm just a newcomer and to act with such talented and legendary actors does add lot of pressure. There's lot of expectations on me now and I have to perform to prove myself. It's a do or die situation," she added.

In the film, Priya plays Shabana Azmi's daughter. Priya, who started shooting on Tuesday, says she was not apprehensive about getting lost in an ensemble cast.
