The Actress Was Thrilled To Reunite With Her Old Gang
"I was super thrilled that I came on board for Street Dancer 3. I love to dance. It's one of my most favourite things in the world. So I was super excited to get back on Street Dancer and be with my old gang -- my ABCD 2 gang. Characterization is super different and very very exciting. So, I was only happy about it.
